The Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences acknowledges Australia’s First Nations Peoples as the Traditional Owners and Custodians of the land and gives respect to the Elders – past and present – and through them to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are advised that the MAAS website contains a range of Indigenous Cultural Material. This includes artworks, artifacts, images and recordings of people who may have passed away, and other objects which may be culturally sensitive.

Powerhouse Program Collection Digitisation

The Powerhouse Program’s Collection Digitisation will result in new levels of access to the Museum’s extraordinary collections, with digital images able to be accessed online by anyone, anytime. Explore a selection of our recently digitised objects here, and the growing collection of images as they are added to our collection online.
