Sitting inside an old power station constructed in 1902 to power Sydney’s tram system, the Powerhouse is a science and technology museum that promotes the principle of interaction. Go on a voyage of discovery as you stroll through the exhibitions exploring science, technology, human achievement and decorative arts. Watch the exhibitions come alive before your eyes and learn how everyday items really work. Walk through the old boiler house, with its towering smokestacks, and see the turbine and engine houses, and discover the role the building originally played. There are plenty of activities for the kids, with lots of opportunities for them to use their hands and interact with the exhibitions. Featuring 22 permanent exhibitions, more than 250 interactive displays and an ever-changing program of exhibitions, visitors can experience virtual reality 3D theatres, science experiments, touch screen monitors and informative audio commentary.
