Store 3

Permanent Exhibition

What’s parked in this store? Among many types of transport there’s a Cobb & Co coach, wheat wagon, steam ploughing engine, a selection of Australian cars, bicycles, a steam locomotive, a caravan, a yacht, a fire engine and an array of aircraft. There’s also a totem pole and a huge mosaic, which are here because it is the only store high enough to house them!


About these collections

The items on display at the Museums Discovery Centre are drawn from the vast collections of the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences, Australian Museum and Sydney Living Museums.

Between them, these museums care for millions of objects and specimens, providing insights into engineering, architecture, science, art, transport, fashion, design, health, technology, natural history, domestic life, Indigenous and Pacific cultures and more.

Many of the items you’ll see on display have never been exhibited before, and there are many more treasures to be seen by taking a booked tour through the deep stores where the museum staff work day to day.
