Careers at the Powerhouse

The Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences sits at the intersection of art, design, science and technology, and plays a critical role in engaging communities with contemporary ideas and issues. Established in 1881, the Museum includes Powerhouse Ultimo, Sydney Observatory, and the Museums Discovery Centre and will expand to include Powerhouse Parramatta — the largest cultural infrastructure project currently being undertaken in Australia.

The Museum is the custodian of over half a million objects of national and international significance and is considered one of the finest and most diverse collections in Australia. The revitalisation of Powerhouse Ultimo and the launch of Powerhouse Parramatta offer the opportunity to be part of a dynamic and collaborative team that is redefining and reinvigorating a much-loved institution.
