Sydney’s underworld comes to life this summer. Open daily 1-29 January and offering brand new experiences, the Justice & Police Museum is bringing the whole family closer than ever before to the chilling history of sinister Sydney.
Guilty or not guilty – you decide. Bushrangers Behind Bars invites you to step into the shoes of a notorious criminal and take to the stand to plead your innocence. Or perhaps you’d prefer the barrister’s wig, where you’ll determine the fate of your convicted comrade? Whatever your choice, take on a character and play your part in an exciting theatrical experience; and see first-hand how a 19th century magistrates court put Sydney’s infamous criminals behind bars. (Daily, 11am & 3.30pm)
For adults interested the gruesome and the macabre, Murder in the Museum tells the salacious stories of bushranger Andrew George Scott, alias Captain Moonlite, and Henry Louis Bertrand – aka ‘the mad dentist of Wynyard Square.’ Hear uncensored stories while seated within the Water Police Court, where these two criminals once stood trial. (Daily, 3pm, 16yrs+)
Recharge with a coffee and a sweet treat available onsite, then pose for a mug shot, have your fingerprints taken and enjoy a range of tours, talks and kids-friendly activities available across the museum.

When: Daily from 10am: 1-29 January
