We’re digitising our collection

The Powerhouse Collection Relocation and Digitisation Project is one of the largest digitisation projects in Australia which will digitally capture approximately 338,000 items from the Museum’s collection. The project is part of the Powerhouse Program which includes the establishment of the Powerhouse Museum in Parramatta, the expansion of the Museum’s Discovery Centre and the creation of a creative industries precinct in Ultimo.

The digitisation project commenced in late 2019 and will result in new levels of access to the Museum’s extraordinary collections, with digital images able to be accessed online by anyone, anytime.

278,000 Items added to date.
