In the Powerhouse Museum transport galleries, move among the kinds of vehicles that have shaped our way of life. You’ll see some grand and gracious objects including the Catalina Flying boat in which Captain P G Taylor surveyed an air route between Sydney and Valparaiso, Chile, in 1951, and the luxuriously appointed Governor’s railway carriage of 1891. See the vehicles that carry us from cradle to grave including a pram, boats, and many more.
This exhibition is temporarily closed due to building works on level 1 of the Powerhouse. It will reopen on 15 March 2021. Apologies for any inconvenience.
