Expansion of Museums Discovery Centre

Community Engagement

The Powerhouse Museum and Create NSW invite you to learn more about the proposed expansion of the Museums Discovery Centre, Castle Hill. The initiative includes plans for new state-of-the-art spaces to support increased public engagement and access to the Powerhouse Collection.

Highlights of the plan
A new state-of-the-art building will be constructed on the site, and will include spaces for the storage, care, research and viewing of the Powerhouse Collection, as well as flexible spaces for education and public programs, workshops, talks and events.

The proposed expansion will increase opportunities for storytelling, skill-sharing, education programs, tours, events, partnerships and temporary exhibitions, and provide greater access to the Powerhouse Collection for the people of Castle Hill and broader Sydney community.
