Its unique and diverse collection spans history, science, technology, design, industry, decorative arts, music, transport and space exploration.
The exhibitions are smart and interactive
The Museum Shop is fantastic . Food and drinks available at Cafe nearby.
Heaps of interesting stuff in one place
Exhibits are always changing, lots of schools use this for excursions of you go during the week.
Very eclectic ! From a loco to underwear, and then space.
Interesting exhibition of underwear. And permanent exhibition really cool for kids :)
Make sure you follow its calendar .. Always something worth seeing
once upon a time, they exhibited the queen's diamond wattle brooch
Great museum: very interactive and entertaining. Perfect for families with children
Here for the Maker Faire - let's see what you got Sydney nerds!
Easily spend 3-4 hours at the museum. Plenty of cool exhibits that even adults would find interesting
Fantastic museum of science and design. Needs a bit of brushing up (will tell you about that) but some great stuff here.
i love this!
You have to buy the tickets online as they do not have the ticket counters in the museum. Nevertheless, the tour was awesome
what a great day at the powerhouse museum in ultimo, I'll come back soon.
Don't miss the Strasbourg clock performance!
Make sure you allow for at least three hours inside!
If you're a tourist visiting Sydney for a few days, you can skip it unless it's raining and you can't find anything else to keep your kids busy.
it was really a nice experience .. you should visit it if you are going to Sydney :)
Check out the simulated Mars landscape where they test the next generation of rovers.
This place is NOT worth the price you pay. Dimly lit. Interactive stuff mostly broken. Boring displays.
Skip the boomerang cafe! Short staffed, dirty and smelly!
Open hour : 9:30 am - 5 pmEVERYDAY !
New Wiggles exhibit now open but not same location as Zoe's Place. No prams in wiggles exhibit, even if you have a sleeping baby.
Learn silk screening & Shibori dye techniques @phmuseum for #craftpunk this weekend!
Check out Lovelace exhibition and be sure to download and use the mobile phone app
Check out the Strasburg Clock at the rear of the building as you enter the building.
Coffee ? - Don't get it here, it's crap. Grab one from one of the many quality cafés nearby
Take a tour if the museum's size is intimidating. You'll get shown the best bits and so you can double-back to check them out.
Really disappointed with my visit today. I was saddened to find Zoe's House gone & 'replaced' with the Wiggles. Instead of a fun inclusive play my son with autism was overwhelmed & scared. #epicfail
This is the coolest museum ever! There are so many different sections to explore and much of the museum is interactive so you have a great time here. Admission is only $10. Happy times ahead :)
No camera blitz allowed!
The popular Zoe's House has now closed. Keep an eye out for new activities for young children.
Make sure to check out the Powerhouse Museum layar with hist. photos of Sydney to see a different perspective of the urban space. Search direct through the Layar app.
Check to see what exhibits are on and when. Sometimes there is a crossover and quite a bit can be closed. It can leave a bad taste in your wallet!
Make sure to talk to the new robot on level 3. He has beautiful eyes.
Fab museum for kids. Lots of things of kids to look and play with. The 80s exhibition rocks!
Great digital media workshops for all ages. Learn music, video, graphics software, film making, digital storytelling and social networking skills.
fastBREAK - for young entrepreneurs to meet like people. Happens on the last Friday of (most) months. One of the coolest crowds you'll meet in Sydney. vibewire.org for more details.
Get your Entertainment Centre parking ticket stamped here.
join, the benefits are worth it. members lounge ftw.
Great venue - can get lost all day in interesting collection
There's a fun school holiday program at the moment, including a new space for kids called The Tinytoreum.
The Frock Stars: Inside Australian Fashion week exhibition running until the 29th of August 2010 is very interesting
Go to Powerhouse Museum. Enjoy all the exhibits from Victorian era until the 80's. Do not miss the giant steam locomotive train near the entrance. Instant journey to the past.
