The Steam Revolution

Exhibition
On now until 30 June 2020 Powerhouse Museum Book Tickets

For more than 200 years, steam did almost everything in our society. It pumped water, drove factories, powered ships across oceans and ploughs through fields. Steam turbines still provide 90 per cent of our electricity. The Steam Revolution exhibition shows how steam touched the lives of millions.

Twelve steam engines, ‘hands-on’ displays, old boilers, videos and much more show how steam engines developed, what they did and how they changed the world.

We are currently undergoing routine maintenance on the steam lines from the boilers to the steam objects. This is expected to be completed shortly and normal operations will resume.

This exhibition is included with General Entry to the Powerhouse Museum, and tickets can be purchased online at the link below or on your arrival at the Museum.
