About the Powerhouse Museum:

Sydney’s Powerhouse Museum was created in and around the shell of Sydney’s Ultimo power station, (originally built to provide power for the Sydney electric tram network). The redesigned building opened as the Powerhouse Museum in 1988 permitting visitors to experience a vast selection of fascinating objects drawn from the Museum’s collection.

From the historic steam revolution of our past to the latest in Australian and international architecture and design, the Museum is more than just a unique venue. It provides an environment that showcases human creativity and achievement, champions the future and stimulates thought provoking debate.
