Nine Sydney attractions staying open for Culture Up Late

This summer, go straight from work to DJs, drinks and shows – art galleries, museums and cultural venues are staying open past dark

By Time Out in association with City of Sydney and Destination NSW

Swap the peak-hour crush for a late-night culture fix in the city. Until March 2021, all your favourite arts and culture institutions are keeping their doors open for extended hours at least one night each week, meaning you’ll be able to head to an exhibition straight after work.  

Each week there’ll be special events, from behind-the-scenes tours and intimate gigs to talks and film screenings, so keep an eye on Culture Up Late to see what’s around the corner. Here are nine institutions and what they're offering to Sydney's night owls.

See the full list of Culture Up Late venues and events below:

All events will follow Covid-safe regulations and guests are reminded to follow the latest NSW Health advice regarding social distancing, hygiene and staying home if unwell.
