Tamworth Powerstation Museum

The Tamworth Powerstation Museum is located in the regional city of Tamworth, on Kamilaroi / Gomeroi Country, in the New England region of New South Wales.

It is Australia’s only dedicated electricity museum and occupies a refurbished 1907 Municipal showroom, on the site where wood-fire generators powered the first electric streetlights in the Southern Hemisphere in 1888.

While highlighting the story of Tamworth’s early streetlighting, the museum also explores the wider history of electrical innovation through its unique collection of historic household appliances, gadgets, industrial machinery and one of the largest collections of electric light bulbs in Australia.
