Andrew Grant – Subject  “The Power House Museum”

Andrew Grant has been deeply involved in preserving, documenting and promoting Australia’s transport heritage since the mid 1970s, initially as an industrial arts educator, then a project manager and later senior curator at the Powerhouse Museum, Sydney.  


After graduating with a B.Sc. (Hons) from the University of NSW in 1976, he completed an M.Sc. in 1985 with a thesis about the coachbuilding industry in Australia.


Since his retirement in 2012, Andrew has been a volunteer at the Powerhouse and is also a transport heritage consultant, which mainly involves providing formal advice about the cultural significance of transport artefacts and collections in order to achieve better collection management outcomes.


Andrew and his wife Marilyn married in 1973. They have a daughter and a son, also happily married, and four energetic granddaughters aged from 6 to 3 years.
