I believe the Powerhouse should stay in its current home where it has strong community support and is easily accessible. More of the amazing collection currently in storage should be on display.
While the government remains committed to a new museum in Parramatta, at recent hearings of the Legislative Council Inquiry into museums and galleries, the minister committed to including an option of retaining ‘cultural space’ at Ultimo, with a museum, gallery or performance space in the business case. Media reports suggest this includes partnership with other institutions and I hope that any agreement builds on the Powerhouse’s history as a science and technology centre.
