24 Dec 2016 - An afternoon of fun at Powerhouse Museum
As we had some time today, we decided to visit the Powerhouse Museum.
As the museum is quite near Chinatown, we decided to go “Yum Cha”, more commonly known as dim sum here. We just walked in to the 1 st yum cha house that appeal to us, and had a very full and delicious meal. After our lunch, we took a short walk to the Powerhouse Museum.
Powerhouse Museum is also known as the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences. There was the Egyptian Mummies exhibition from the British Museum going on at the Museum but we decided to give that a miss since we had seen it before at MONA (Museum of Old and New Art) in Tasmania.
As it was school holidays in Australia at that time, there were special activities for the kids at the museum. The kids had a good time playing with the other children at the activities stations before embarking on the exploration of the museum.
There was a section on transportation with life-sized model of Space Shuttle, Locomotive and Airplanes.
Powerhouse Museum is indeed the perfect family destination for exploring the interactive side of arts and science.
There was a yellow room where everything, including ourselves, turned "Yellow" inside the room.
We spent the whole afternoon exploring the museum until we were chased out at 5.00pm.
