Convict History

Prisons are not usually synonymous with brilliant architecture, but the Hyde Park Barracks were not your average prison. The barracks were designed by convict architect Francis Greenway in the early 1800s and his beautiful design earned him a full pardon! Museum tours are open to those who want to learn about daily prison life of yesteryear.
