What to expect
Things to look out for
Head to the "Tinkering Zone" where you can play scientist, designer, inventor or engineer. Ever wondered where lightning comes from or how a battery works? This is the place for you, don't stop there, experiment with this information yourself. A great place to learn, play and build with the kids.
It is recommended to plan to allow 2-3 hours to visit the museum. The museum has a great gift shop so it is a great spot to pick up unique presents for friends and family. Families will also love the new exhibit, Experimentations! – this is where YOU get to be the scientist, thinker, artist and inventor.
The MAAS Café on Level 3 is the perfect start or end to your day at the Powerhouse Museum. It is open for breakfast and closes at 5 PM every day, providing a relaxing environment to sit with a coffee or glass of wine and enjoy a burger or cake.
You can access all of the main levels of the Powerhouse Museum by ramps and elevators. For visitors using manual wheelchairs, the wheelchair is recommended. Wheelchairs can be borrowed at no charge from the cloaking desk in the main entrance foyer. Toilets designed for disabled access are provided in each of the toilet blocks.
The Powerhouse Museum is close to Darling Harbour, Chinatown, Central Station (Sydney Terminal), Broadway Bus station (Railway Square) and Exhibition Centre Sydney Light Railway Station. For timetable information, you’ll want to visit: https://transportnsw.info.
