About the organisation
The Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences sits at the intersection of the arts, design, science and technology and plays a critical role in engaging communities with contemporary ideas and issues. Established in 1881, the museum includes the Powerhouse Ultimo, Sydney Observatory, the Museums Discovery Centre in Castle Hill and will expand to include the museum’s new flagship - Powerhouse Parramatta. The Museum is custodian to over half a million objects of national and international significance and is considered one of the finest and most diverse collections in Australia.
The Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences is undertaking landmark renewal program which includes the creation of Powerhouse Parramatta, the largest cultural infrastructure project since the Sydney Opera House; the expansion of Museum’s Discovery Centre, Castle Hill which includes expanded storage and new research and public facilities and the renewal of the iconic Powerhouse Museum in Ultimo. Key to the renewal is the assessment and digitisation of over 380,000 objects from the museum’s collection providing new levels of access. Through the renewal program, the Powerhouse will become a national leader in sustainability and is uniquely placed to engage communities with the role technology, engineering, science and design can play in addressing sustainability challenges and climate change.
