Location of the Museums Discovery Centre in Castle Hill

You’ll find the Museums Discovery Centre at the corner of Showground Road and Windsor Road in Castle Hill Sydney. You can only enter the complex as you travel towards Castle Hill along Showground Road – be prepared to enter a large gate area just after you turn off from Windsor Road.

The site was formerly known as the Powerhouse Discovery Center; it is now a collaboration of the Museum of Applied Arts & Sciences, the Australian Museum and Sydney Living Museums.
