On Wednesday September 1st, Powerhouse Museum curators will be taking part in ‘Ask a Curator Day’.
The day is a worldwide initiative that lets people connect to museum curators through social media.
We are using our Facebook page, and over 13 of our curators will be standing by on the day to answer YOUR questions!
All you have to do is become a fan of the Powerhouse Museum on Facebook, then get your thinking caps on and come up with some great questions for us to answer on Wednesday (please note we are still pondering the answer to “What is the meaning of life?” so best to keep questions Museum related!)
To kick things off I have a few questions myself!
Every time I am in our collections basement I walk past this tyre swan. I’d love to find out why we have this!
We have had this Marc Newson Lockheed Lounge on display in the Museum’s foyer for a few years. He only made a handful, and a few have popped up at overseas auctions recently selling for over one millions dollars. For what I assume is the world’s most expensive couch, it sure doesn’t look comfortable….Has a curator ever sat on it?
BIG TRAINS! how do we get them inside?
So….what will YOU ask on Wednesday? hit us with your best shot!
