MAAS  Our Collection and more at Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences (Powerhouse Museum, Sydney Observatory & Museums Discovery Centre) Sydney, Australia.


Sunday means we’ve reached the final day of #MuseumWeek. We’re going out with a bang as we celebrate #heritage with this stunning photograph of our heritage-listed venue Sydney Observatory. If you’re in Sydney and haven’t visited this 159 year old building, make sure it moves to the top of your list. #Observatory #SydneyObservatory #Astronomy #Sydney #HeritageMW

Our wonderful @maasvolunteers demonstrating the Mars rovers for the #freemuseumsweekend at the Powerhouse. General admission is free all weekend, as well as at @museumsdiscoverycentre and night viewings at #sydneyobservatory

Kicking off the weekend with the theme of #Travels for #MuseumWeek. We have an amazing collection of photographs by Hedda Morrison from her travels in the #MAAScollection. This aerial view of two rickshaw pullers by the German-born photographer was taken during her years spent in Peking (Beijing) 1933-1946. #TravelsMW #WomenMW #HeddaMorrison

We’re sharing an epic love story for today’s #MuseumWeek theme #Stories 💕💕💕

In 1966 Charis McKittrick and George Schwarz rode their treasured 1965 BMW R50 model 500cc motorcycle from their home in Spain to Victoria to marry in front of family.⠀

Travelling through France, Italy, Yugoslavia, Bulgaria, Turkey, Syria, Iraq, Iran, West Pakistan, India, Malaysia and Singapore, they saved money by avoiding toll roads, sleeping rough and on occasion eating fresh roadkill. ⠀

For the ceremony, Charis wore her mother’s 1937 silk wedding dress with a white mirrored wedding hat purchased in Pakistan. ⠀

Tune into @sunriseon7 for a sneak peak at our Sherlock Holmes exhibition!

Day 3 of #MuseumWeek is themed around #music. This detailed photo shows part of our Bechstein Piano. Grand and authoritative in its design, the piano was made in Berlin in 1878 by Bechstein, the leading brand in Europe at the time. It was acquired by the Museum in 2014 and is being displayed and used for public performances for the first time since 1879. #piano #MusicMW #Berlin #Germany

#MuseumWeek continues with today’s theme being Sport. What a great opportunity to revisit the Sydney Olympics and its Olympic torch – now in the MAAS Collection – used by Cathy Freeman to ignite the Olympic cauldron during the Opening Ceremony.

This torch is perhaps the most compelling object of the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games. It signifies the precise moment when the Games officially opened, and when the world focussed its attentions upon Sydney and Australian culture as a whole.

It’s #MuseumWeek and today’s theme is food. What could be more appropriate than sharing a picture of our collection of #Vegemite jars – one of Australia’s favourite foods!⠀

The spread - made from brewer’s yeast – was first released in 1923. Today more than 23 million jars are produced each year.⠀

The museum’s collection includes various types of containers used by the manufacturers of Vegemite between 1923 and present.⠀

This Sunday we bid a fond farewell to our Out of Hand exhibition that has explored the #past, #present and #future of contemporary #art, #science, #design and #architecture.
It feels like only yesterday we were installing this Hyphae Pendant Lamp (2014) inspired by how veins form in #leaves. Come and see it for yourself this weekend before the exhibition closes.

We can’t get enough of the beautiful Chinese New Year posters currently on display at #PowerhouseMuseum. This one is titled ‘Joyful celebration for the abundant harvest (Xiqingfengshou)’.⠀

This chair is the stunning work of Chinese artist Zhoujie Zhang. It is based on spontaneity and pays respect to the logic of mathematics and the law of the digital environment. This chair was selected from a range of hundreds of experimental chairs – we’d love to see the others one day!

See it in #OutOfHand at the #PowerhouseMuseum before the exhibition closes this Sunday.
