If you are interested in how things work you will love the Powerhouse Museum. Its strong emphasis on technology and range of interactive exhibits let you explore many facets of the world around you.
While there are several permanent exhibitions, there are also temporary exhibitions and activities which regularly change. A day at the powerhouse museum could include seeing an amazing light show, playing a musical instrument you've never heard of and listening to a seminar on how a steam engine works. As all of these activities are constantly changing, no two visits will be the same. Design, ecology and engineering all feature in the permanent exhibitions, but there are also many exhibitions featuring items of social and cultural interest.
The museum is close to the Paddy's Market
Monorail station, the Darling Harbour
station and is also walking distance from the Broadway bus stop. Address: 500 Harris Street, Ultimo, NSW, 2007.
