Today we went along for high tea at Hyde Park Barracks in Sydney. Before we stuffed our faces we went into the barracks museum to find out a bit more about convict life. The kids followed the "rat trail" around the museum to discover some of its objects and stories. There were plenty of opportunities for dressing up and handling objects.
