Powerhouse Parramatta represents the largest investment in cultural infrastructure by the NSW Government since the Sydney Opera House and will be the first NSW State cultural institution housed in Western Sydney. Featuring over 18,000 square metres of museum exhibition and public spaces, Powerhouse Parramatta will deliver dynamic exhibition, education and community programs that will attract over two million visitors in its first year.
Community support is needed to transform Powerhouse Parramatta from a ground-breaking architectural building into the beating heart of Greater Western Sydney ― to create a world-class Museum of the future that inspires locals and attracts interstate and international visitors to the region.
Powerhouse Parramatta “is a visionary iconic institution that will continue to put Parramatta on the map and I’m convinced that a student or somebody who walks through the museum could make the next best breakthrough in science and technology or space or innovation. Let’s not underestimate our capacity as Australians, as citizens of Western Sydney to change the world.”
The Hon. Gladys Berejiklian MP NSW Premier
The Powerhouse Parramatta Campaign seeks to raise $75 million towards the capital cost of the Museum, including its fit-out and first year of awe-inspiring programming.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to inspire generations to come.
