The Powerhouse Museum boasts a collection of more than 380,000 objects. See an extraordinary array of treasures in the fields of science, technology, industry, design, decorative arts and history. Exhibitions and programs are based on the ideas and technologies that have changed our world, and the stories of the people who create and inspire them.

An ever-changing program of temporary displays complements a range of permanent exhibitions while education and public programs, new technologies and creative interactions bring the collection to life.

There are regular tours and demonstrations, performances, workshops, forums and other special events held throughout the museum plus two cafes and a state-of-the-art playground in the museum’s courtyard.

Powerhouse Museum has opened its doors free for all kids under the age of 16!

This is part of an exciting initiative of the NSW Government to create more opportunities for children and families to experience arts and culture and will be an ongoing offer indefinitely.
