Please note: the museum is undergoing a staged closure from June 2020, and will be closing fully in June 2021 to relocate to a different Sydney location.
Since 1879, the Powerhouse Museum has served as the main attraction for Sydney's Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences. Its impressive halls are filled with all things technological—from science and communication to transport and computers—even massive steam engines.
Jam-packed with more than 400,000 artifacts, this Sydney staple has become a destination for train lovers, engineers, computer nerds, scientists, and the curious. While the permanent collection is pretty incredible on its own, popular temporary exhibitions, such as those that have showcased Star Trek, The Lord of the Rings, Fabergé and even singer Kylie Minogue, keep this classic museum contemporary and up to date.
The Powerhouse Museum is located at 500 Harris Street between William Henry and Macarthur streets. It’s open daily from 10am until 5pm.
Address: 500 Harris Street, Ultimo, Sydney, Australia
Hours: Daily 10am–5pm
Admission: Adults $15, Children (4-15 years old) $8
