MAAS: a very special museum

Many general stories about the Powerhouse Museum are accompanied by a picture of the hanging aircraft in the Transport Hall. MAAS has indeed a wonderful collection in the field of technology and science, but the collection of decorative and applied arts is also outstanding. Strengthening the interface between applied arts and sciences vital to our future, and Australia’s only Museum specialising in this field should remain in its present position.
