Powerhouse Museum

The Powerhouse Museum is the major branch of Sydney’s Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences, which incorporates the Sydney Observatory.

The Museum’s purpose is to discover and be inspired by human ingenuity. It boasts a unique and diverse collection spanning history, science, technology, design, industry, decorative arts, music, transport, space exploration and material heritage and stories of Australian culture.

The Powerhouse Museum has a strong regional focus with an outreach program that supports cultural heritage organisations across the state to record, preserve and display their collections for the benefit of regional communities.

Support includes Regional Internships, the Movable Heritage Fellowship, the Professional Advice and Project Assistance program and facilitation of the annual Regional Stakeholder Forum, in partnership with other key cultural and service agencies.
