History of the Jubilee Room

This room was originally built as a library for Parliament House. Modelled in the style of an Edwardian reading room, the Jubilee Room, built in 1905 is an elegant space, resplendent with features such as floor-to-ceiling bookshelves lined with parliamentary tomes, intricate woven carpets and a beautiful stained-glass ceiling; a rare and precious artwork crafted in honour of Her Majesty, Queen Victoria.

Since 1842, the NSW Parliamentary Library has maintained a wonderful collection of historic and contemporary materials, including original handwritten manuscripts, photographs, maps and plans. These treasures provide a unique narration of the history of NSW.
