New museum for Western Sydney

Western Sydney


The NSW Government is committed to building a truly iconic museum on the Parramatta Riverbank site, designed to meet community needs and be a real attraction for Western Sydney, as well as national and international visitors.

The museum will be the flagship campus for the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences, on the cutting edge of science and innovation and bring the very best to a booming Western Sydney.

The new museum represents a significant investment in cultural opportunity, jobs and economic growth for Western Sydney

The Government will be working with the community to guarantee the new facility reflects the needs of the community and is designed with input from the people of Western Sydney.

Create NSW are seeking expressions of interest for those who wish to be involved in the consultation process. The consultation process will be open to anybody with an interest in developing a new flagship museum facility for the community of Western Sydney and beyond.

More information on upcoming consultation opportunities will be available soon.

Museums & Galleries of NSW helps small-medium museums, galleries and Aboriginal cultural centres create exciting experiences for visitors and, through this, thriving local NSW communities. We don't run museums, galleries and cultural centres but we care about those who do. We develop their skills, connect them with others in the industry, provide funding, point visitors their way, and give them access to ground-breaking exhibitions.

Museums & Galleries of NSW is supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW.
