Afterwards we took the rediculously overpriced tram to the Powerhouse Museum. Inside is the oldest steam engine in the world, dating from 1785, called the Boulton & Watt steam engine. I was more a fan of the Cyberworlds exhibit, a look at computers' evolution since their invention, the world's musical instrument section and an exhibit on product design by famous designers such as Marc Newson. Its main appeal was the hands-on approach you get, where by pretty much each artefact in the museum has a Mac next to it with some sort of interaction, ranging from designing your own quilt to choosing your transport policies if you were transport minister for Sydney - especially popular with the resident transport planner on our trip.
