Sydney’s Powerhouse Museum continues tours and extends exhibitions
Sydney's Powerhouse Museum is extending access to its popular Heritage Core tours allowing the public the chance to visit the inspiring collection until the end of 2020 while also extending the Indigenous exhibition, Linear.
Other collections in the museum will remain open as planned.
The popular tours provide a behind the scenes experience of the Powerhouse Collection, from the kind of vehicles that have shaped our way of life, to an actual Moon rock on loan from NASA, and a chance to see Powerhouse staff digitising the Collection.
Powerhouse Chief Executive, Lisa Havilah, said the decision to extend the tour program is a great opportunity for the public to view the collection as the Museum prepares for its future in Western Sydney and notes “our Visitor Services team has been inundated with positive feedback about the tours we have been providing since the beginning of June. I’m delighted to announce we will continue the popular program for the rest of 2020 while our team continues our important Collection Digitisation and Relocation Project.”
When completed the Digitisation Project will see the capture of around 338,000 objects from the Museum’s collection online.
The announcement includes a six-month extension to the Indigenous exhibition, Linear.
The Linear exhibition brings together unique, diverse and personal voices of leading Indigenous practitioners from across Australia, alongside artworks and objects from the collection.
Havilah added “it has been a difficult time for many of late, so I’m pleased we can welcome the community in to see our inspiring Collection while we continue our relocation preparation for Parramatta.”
On 25th July, the Powerhouse will also be launching the new exhibition Maton: Australia’s Guitar, the largest retrospective of Australia’s leading guitar manufacturer in the Touring Hall.
The Museum continues to observe strict physical distancing and hygiene measures to protect the health of all visitors and staff. This includes limiting visitor numbers while restrictions are in place through timed ticketing sessions to ensure physical distancing is maintained.
