Powerhouse Ultimo Revitalisation

A heritage revitalisation that incorporates the iconic Wran building.


The Powerhouse Ultimo Revitalisation will continue to deliver an applied science and applied arts program, presenting exhibitions that showcase the Powerhouse Museum collection, international exclusive exhibitions and programs that support the applied arts, applied sciences and creative industries.

Project status

On 2 September 2023, the NSW Government announced a revised budget of $250 million for a heritage revitalisation to the Powerhouse Museum Ultimo. This replaces the previous $481 million allocated by the former government for a Powerhouse renewal project.

Revised design development is currently underway, and community consultation will follow.

Community consultation

Community consultation with Powerhouse Museum staff, the arts and culture sector, business and creative industries groups, the education sector, peak bodies, expert advisors, local communities, and the public on the details and timing of this heritage redevelopment will be undertaken shortly.
