Discover what life as a convict was like

This July, Sydney Living Museums is hosting Convict Kids at Elizabeth Farm, an exciting series of interactive reenactment experiences for boys and girls aged 5 to 12!

Convict kids, come straight off the ship and get to work on the Macarthur estate. Mr Macarthur is returning from England and there's much to be done before he arrives.

The table needs to be set, clothes washed, the bed needs to be made and there are so many other jobs to do!

Then try writing your name with a quill to receive your ticket of leave before relaxing with some games in the garden.

After the program, join in on a family-friendly tour and explore the museum some more.


Bookings are essential: Visit to secure your tickets.
