Powerhouse Museum:Collette Dinnigan and Lego

We decided to take a trip to the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney to check out the Collette Dinnigan: Unlaced display (running till 28 August 2016) And the Art of the Brick:DC Comics display (running till 1 May 2016).

Just make note if you have to buys tickets through ticketek you don’t need to buy general admission to the museum.
The Art of the Brick:DC Comics display put on by Nathan Sawaya who used hundreds of thousands of Lego pieces to recreate DC Comics characters like Batman. He recreated not just the characters but also the front covers of the comics and also the ‘goodies and badies’ and their vehicles. It was amazing with a real sized Batmobile using 489,010 bricks. It was awesome!

They had some displays that looked like just a normal canvas with batman going through the middle but really it was batman going through a wall of lego.
Lego tickets were $26 each. We booked in advance and went for opening because we knew it would get busy with kids.


Mum wanted to check out the Collette Dinnigan displays. They were pretty amazing as well. They went from lingerie to children’s clothing and wedding dresses.
This display had no extra fee so entry to the museum which was $15.
The Powerhouse Museum is opened 10am till 5pm daily. It is situated on Harris Street Ultimo and is just behind and over the rail track from Darling Harbour.  The museum is a mix of decorative arts and design, science, transport, technology and space. We have not been through the full museum for years but it looks like so much fun.
Both were amazing. We parked on Harris Street for all day which was $10 paid in advanced. There was a walk way across from the car park to another car park closer to Harbourside in Darling Harbour.
