The Space exhibition looks at space and discoveries relating to it.
It has existed in various guises for over 125 years, and is home to some 400,000 artifacts, many of which are displayed or housed at the site it has occupied since 1988, and for which it is named — a converted electric tram power station in the Inner West suburb of Ultimo, originally constructed in 1902.
It is well known, and a popular Sydney tourist destination.
It stands beside a mock-up of a railway platform, on the other side of which is the Governor of New South Wales's railway carriage, of the 1880s.
Also in this exhibition is the original Central Railway Station destination board, relocated to the museum in the 1980s when the station was refurbished.
There is also a horse-drawn bus and collection of motorbikes.
