Powerhouse Museum hotels
The state of the art Powerhouse Museum in Sydney features a diverse collection of science related exhibits that have celebrated the applied arts and sciences for over a hundred years. Located on Harris Street in southwestern end of the city, the museum was originally constructed in 1902 and named for a defunct electric tram power station in the suburb of Ultimo. Now the Powerhouse Museum is home to more than 400,000 artefacts that tell the history of everything from communication and transport to steam engines and furniture, making it one of the most unique science museums in the world.
- Go to the train exhibit of the Powerhouse Museum to see the oldest operational rotative steam engine in the world that was built in 1785 and brought to Sydney in the late 19th century.
- View the impressive Strasburg Clock Model that was built in Sydney in 1887 and is a working model of the Strasbourg Astronomical Clock located in France's Strasbourg Cathedral.
- Visit the Cyberworlds exhibit to see the history of computing from the first primitive machines to the ultra modern computers of today and beyond.
The Powerhouse Museum is close to many of Sydney's most popular areas including Darling Harbour and Chinatown, so it is easily reached by public transportation. Central Station is the nearest train stop and requires a ten-minute walk along Railway Square to Harris Street. The monorail also stops at Paddy's Market Station, just a short walk from Powerhouse Museum. When the weather is not too hot many Sydneysiders can be found riding bicycles, which is a great way to explore the city without having to deal with trains or traffic.
