Powerhouse Museum

Located in the Ultimo Power Station in Darling Harbour, the Powerhouse Museum’s building is in itself worthwhile visiting as part of Sydney’s history. The collections on display span science, technology, design and decorative arts, engineering, architecture, health and medicine, fashion and contemporary culture. The permanent and temporary exhibitions are ideal for families or individuals looking to understand Australia’s unique culture – particularly focused on creativity and design.

There are several permanent exhibitions in the Powerhouse Museum complemented by changing temporary exhibitions and displays. There are regular tours and demonstrations, performances, workshops, forums and other special events held throughout the Museum. Some tours are available for free and others require a small fee.

The Powerhouse Museum is accessible by Light rail (Paddy’s Market stop), bus or train to Central Station followed by a lovely walk along the historic Goods Line. The Powerhouse Museum is also a short walk from the International Convention Centre Sydney.

The Powerhouse Museum is the flagship of the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences (MAAS), The other two being Sydney Observatory and the Museum Discovery Centre.
