The Powerhouse Museum have the regular Science on Show programs every weekend as well as events, exhibitions and workshops for kids.

It is the only museum in Australia with a dedicated exhibition on the theme of space exploration. What’s it like to live and work in the weightless environment of space? What do astronauts eat? Discover what it’s like on the International Space Station and experience the illusion of weightlessness in the Zero Gravity Space Lab. Plus see a real moon rock!

The Museum's Level 1 courtyard has been transformed into an outdoor playground. Children will have lots of fun playing on the state-of-the art equipment. And it's right next to the cafe, so parents and carers can relax at the courtyard tables while keeping an eye on the kids.

Feeding the family: A child-friendly cafe is located in the courtyard on level 1 (the lowest gallery level of the Museum). The courtyard tables are within view of the Cogs’ Playground. Eating is not allowed inside the Museum.
