POWERHOUSE MUSEUM COMING TO PARRAMATTA
The expanded world-class Powerhouse Museum will form the centrepiece of a new arts and cultural precinct on the banks of the Parramatta River, including a modernised Riverside Theatres complex.
“It will be bigger and better than anything NSW has ever seen and will rival global cultural icons such as the London Science Museum and the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum,” Ms Berejiklian said.
“It’s so important that young people are excited and inspired by science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics because the jobs of tomorrow will rely heavily on these disciplines.”
Early works begin in 2019 with the venue expected to open to visitors in 2023.
