Sydney is home to more history and art museums than we can count but those dedicated to science and natural history are more difficult to find. That shouldn’t stop you from looking, and here are three museums where science lovers will find everything that they’re looking for.
Sydney’s most impressive science museum, Powerhouse Museum serves as a major branch of the Museum of Applied Arts & Sciences. It houses 400,000 artifacts covering a wide range of different subjects, ranging from transportation and ecology to space exploration and electricity.
The oldest museum in Australia and one of the oldest natural history museums in the world, this cultural institution has been wowing visitors for almost two centuries. Its impressive collection dedicated to zoology, mineralogy, paleontology, and anthropology has been hailed as one of the very best in these fields.
One of Sydney’s top spots for space lovers, this astronomical observatory also serves as a museum of astronomy and meteorology. It’s located inside a historic fort that served many different purposes over the centuries, and it offers amazing harbor views thanks to its convenient hilltop location.
