The MAAS Project

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

The New Museum will be designed with community input and will be on the cutting edge of science and innovation. 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.
