Expansion of Museums Discovery Centre

Community Engagement

The Powerhouse Museum and Create NSW invited the community to learn more about the proposed expansion of the Museums Discovery Centre, Castle Hill. We have included, considered and responded to feedback in the Consultation Outcomes Report which will be submitted to the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE) as part of the Environmental Impact Statement. The community will also have an opportunity to submit a formal submission during the Public Exhibition of this project. More information is available on the DPIE website.

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.
