Spotlight on the Garden Palace

In conjunction with barrangal dyara (skin and bones), see a display at the Powerhouse Museum that brings together Jonathan Jones’s work with a selection of objects from the Garden Palace.

The origins of the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences (MAAS) are inextricably linked to the Garden Palace. The Museum was founded in 1880 and its original collections were specifically drawn from the International Exhibition, including objects that survived the fire.
