A catalyst for creative expression and curious minds. 

The Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences (MAAS) is an executive agency of the New South Wales State Government. Embodying the best of design ingenuity and innovation, the Museum profiles one of the world’s great collections and is a highly successful interdisciplinary institution that sits at the intersection of the arts, design, science and technology and plays a critical role in supporting the brand and vision of the city. Access to the Museum’s exceptional collection is a cornerstone of the vision, opening up opportunities for engagement, participation and research.

MAAS currently operates three sites, the Powerhouse Museum in Ultimo, Sydney Observatory in Millers Point and Museums Discovery Centre in Castle Hill. In April 2018, the NSW Government announced the largest investment in museum infrastructure in Australia’s history, which will enable MAAS to expand its operations, and will ensure the Museum and its collection remain a critical part of our local and global communities for centuries to come.

A new, world-class flagship MAAS campus will be built in Parramatta, opening in 2023, and the Museums Discovery Centre will be expanded by 35%. Further planning is also underway for cultural spaces at Ultimo, which include a MAAS-led design and fashion museum.
