Indicative render of the proposed new
Powerhouse Museum in Parramatta
Western Sydney will be the proud home to a world-class arts and cultural precinct, thanks to a $140 million agreement between the NSW Government and Parramatta City Council to secure a riverfront site for the Powerhouse Museum and the redevelopment of the Riverside Theatre.

Announced this week by the NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian, the in-principle agreement also includes a $40 million commitment from Council to fund and grow arts and culture in the community over the next 20 years.

“The Powerhouse at Parramatta will include the best exhibits currently at Ultimo, and will build on them. The new Powerhouse in Parramatta will be bigger and better than anything this State has seen and will be a drawcard for domestic and international visitors,” Ms Berejiklian said.

The NSW Government will retain an arts and cultural presence at the current Ultimo site following the Powerhouse relocation. Community consultations are presently underway, with further information available here.
