The Powerhouse Museum, a nineteenth century institution which has reinvented itself, offers something to satisfy every possible visitor. Its immense collection ranges from decorative arts to crafts, social history, science and technology. Apart from old favorites like the Strasburg Clock, the museum provides an innovative, high technology approach to displays including touch-screens, audio phones and a variety of other hands-on experiences. There is also a shop, restaurant and outdoor cafe.
The staff was extremely helpful. I arrived only 10 minutes before closing. I was looking for a specific airplane that a greatuncle of mine had built and flown in 1930. He had emigrated from my homecountry Austria to Sydney in 1928. So, what he built was the first glider plane of Australia!
I visited Sydney in September 2005 from the United States where I live. I found out my greatuncle had a son. I found him in Tamworth and he told me that this plane was displayed in the Powerhouse Museum a few years ago!
That's why I went. I didn't find the plane, but the staff explained to me that many objects are in storage and that i should email the curator. To sum it up: I saw a lot in 10 minutes, thanks to the staff who led me around to see all the planes they had displayed at the time. Thanks, Powerhouse Museum!

Seen many Museums but never on like it!
All of these antique train, threashing machines, and boat engines; all of them steam powered and all of them operating like mad at certain times each day. Fantastic. And many other exhibits all around. And all of them with an Aussie history. But very clean, safe and well kept.
