Exhibition and Programs: Space
The Powerhouse Museum 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!
We are celebrating World Space Week with a range of fun kids activities over the Spring School Holidays.
Zoe’s Space Trail
Zoe has created a space trail for families to use in the Space exhibition. Pick up your FREE copy from the Admission desk or the entry of the exhibition.
Make your very own space mobile to take home!
