New Museum for Western Sydney

The NSW Government is working with the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences (MAAS) to build a truly iconic museum in Western Sydney.

This vibrant, interactive, world-class cultural institution will be on the cutting edge of science and innovation, open for all people of NSW, as well as national and international visitors. The preferred site for the New Museum is the Riverbank site in the heart of Parramatta.

To deliver the best possible Museum, a business case has been established to ensure all options are investigated, tested and analysed. The business case has been expanded to include an arts and cultural space in Ultimo that considers keeping some MAAS presence at the current Powerhouse Museum site.

Community consultation is an important element of the business case.

Stakeholders will be consulted from across education, culture, industry, government and community.

You can have your say in the following ways:

Feedback from consultation will be considered in the development of the extended business case.
