About this event

See Eucalyptusdom, a new exhibition that reckons with our cultural history and ever-changing relationship with the gum tree, presenting over 400 objects from the Powerhouse Collection alongside 17 newly commissioned works by creative practitioners working across the fields of design, architecture, film, applied arts and performance.

Electric Keys showcases over 20 keyboards from the Powerhouse collection, surveying the journey of electric keyboards and the instrument's contribution to music. Mechanical instruments dating from the 17th Century are presented alongside the Museum’s recently-acquired collection of mid-20th century models, synthesisers and the latest digital piano.

Until 8 August, visit Iranzamin (Land of the Persians), the first survey exhibition of Persian arts and crafts acquired by the Powerhouse Museum since its founding in 1880.

Future Fashion provides a glimpse into the exciting potential of the next generation of Australian fashion designers. The Space exhibition, Experimentations, the Boulton and Watt Engine, Locomotive No. 1 and the Strasburg Clock are also open.
