Powerhouse Ultimo Partners


Founded following the enormous success of the Sydney International Exhibition of 1878, Powerhouse Ultimo has continually evolved over the years — from the Garden Palace in the Botanic Gardens, to Agricultural Hall in the Domain, Technological Museum of Harris Street and the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences housed in the former Ultimo powerhouse.

The Powerhouse acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the ancestral homelands upon which our museums are situated. We respect their Elders, past, present and future and recognise their continuous connection to Country.
