We have created a master plan to give our readers, researchers, students and visitors unprecedented public access to the historic Mitchell building and its extraordinary riches.
Our master plan will deliver:
We're opening up heritage spaces and improving access in and around our Mitchell and Macquarie Street buildings.
The new Michael Crouch Galleries will offer a unique experience for our visitors, stretching across the first floor of the historic Mitchell building.
We’re breaking new ground in the learning environment with this engaging, digitally rich, hands-on space for K—12 students, teachers and families.
A rooftop restaurant/function space with surrounding views of the city.
A 400-seat auditorium with better connection to the Governor Marie Bashir Reading Room
Mitchell Building floor plans
Improved access, accessible facilities, new circulation gallery and the relocation of the Sir William Dixson Research Library and Fellows Room.
Circulation gallery to provide access to the new public galleries and current galleries.
The rooftop venue provides a contemporary addition to the Library’s function, with a distinctive yet visually sympathetic addition to the existing heritage building fabric.
