Castle Hill Powerhouse Discovery Centre


Castle Hill Powerhouse Discovery Centre

The Powerhouse Discovery Centre: Collection Stores at Castle Hill is part of the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences, along with the Powerhouse Museum in Darling Harbour and Sydney Observatory at the Rocks.

The Powerhouse Discovery Centre is the Museums off-site storage and collection care facility, located on the corner of Windsor and Showground roads in Castle Hill in northwest Sydney.

The Museums unique and diverse collection of 385,000 objects spans history, science, technology, design, industry, decorative arts, music, transport and space exploration.

But, like most museums, only a small part of the collection can be exhibited at any one time. The Discovery Centre houses 40 per cent of the collection (by volume), or about 50,000 objects. Now, we've opened this treasure trove to the general public.

The Discovery Centres mission is to provide a world-standard museum storage and collection care facility that is publicly accessible to diverse audiences through a range of tailored behind-the-scenes programs.

Our access programs include monthly public open days (on the second Saturday of each month); themed supervised tours into stores on site; educational programs and workshops, tours for school groups and special-interest groups; school holiday programs; community engagement programs; regional partnership events; and specialist/industry and professional development programs.

These provide insight not only to the Powerhouse collection but to the important preservation work we do.

Be sure to come along to our next monthly public open day! See our website for more information!
