As a custodian and storyteller, MHNSW is committed to preserving and presenting our state’s unique history and bringing its stories to life through diverse voices and viewpoints. We place history before us not behind us, making it immersive, discoverable and relevant through interpretation, exhibitions, public programs and online resources.
MHNSW brings together the museums, historic houses and associated collections previously in the care of Sydney Living Museums with the vast collection of more than 13 million items held by the former NSW State Archives.
