Sky Country

Powerhouse Museum acknowledges the Gadigal as the Traditional Custodians and the first astronomers of the land Sydney Observatory is situated on. We pay respects to, and seek guidance from, their continuous connection to, and deep knowledge of, the Sky Country above us.

Observatory History

A symbol of time and history since 1858, Sydney Observatory has evolved over the years — from steering ships to mapping stars, housing some of Australia's first weather maps to its role now as a public educational space and museum.
