Escape Into a World of Intrigue
Looking for something fun and different to do with your kids? Venture into Powerhouse Museum for a day of intrigue, imagination, discovery and absurdity.

Step into history and ride a 100 year old carousel, see over 60 circus costumes and props featuring ringmasters, animal trainers, acrobats and clowns as well as 200 items from the Museum's vast collection including objects and photographs from the never before seen collection of the famous Australian Wirth's Circus.

Find out scientific explanations that underlie the mystery of the circus and engage in sideshow activities like the Strongman Game and Laughing Clowns.
