Sydney with Kids: Powerhouse Musuem

The next time someone in Sydney comments on Melbourne weather they may be in for it! For at least the past 12 months and maybe longer every time we’ve visited in Syndey we’ve left behind quite lovely weather in Melbourne and arrived in dreary Sydney. I don’t really mind so much as I find the humidity exhausting and crankifying but I think The Architect was hoping for a bit more beach action this week!

Thankfully Sydney is home to many an indoor activity so before the sun came out yesterday, we’ve been exploring. The Powerhouse Museum was the first stop on our list and we had a great time.

Bliss and Bear spent a good morning exploring the trains, lace and space exhibits, took in a science experiment in the flesh and finished off the visit in the totally amazing Wiggles Exhibition!!

There are interactive stations, a Big Red Car, Dorothy’s house, a stage show, and iPads! It’s truly amazing and the kids just loved it. We spent a good morning there though older kids might last longer, the rest of the Museum is still good so we wandered through all the other exhibits and got to The Wiggles last – I had a sneaking suspicion that once we’d been to it then kids wouldn’t be so interested in the rest, and I was right!

Children under 4 are free and adults are $12 each – pretty good value! Children 4-15 are $6 and family passes are also available. You can find the details all here: Powerhouse Museum Hours and Charges. The Powerhouse is also in the Entertainment Book if you have one of them.

Hot tip: go early (as with any museum really) and buy your ticket online beforehand to avoid the queues (esp if you are going to head in later in the day).

What’s your favourite thing to do when it rains on holidays?

  1. Thanks for the info… have been looking for info on free things to do with kids and Sydney and the best I had found so far was this Sydney with kids guide, but they didn’t have any details on the Powerhouse Museum – will definitely add it to the travel itinterary!
