Powerhouse Museum information
A short walk from Darling Harbour, Sydney’s most kid-focused museum whirs away inside the former power station for Sydney’s defunct tram network. High-voltage interactive demonstrations wow school groups with the low-down on how lightning strikes, magnets grab and engines growl. Look out for the Strasburg Clock replica on level three and the mad scientist experimentation stuff on level one.
Grab a map of the museum once you're inside, and a free copy of the Daily Telegraph on your way out. Good disabled access.
