Heritage of the Powerhouse Museum
What’s at stake in the move to Parramatta
The Powerhouse Museum is unique. It is significant culturally and historically. If we destroy it in the process of creating yet another luxury residential tower or internationalised shopping centre, we are ignoring the long-term economic and social benefits of our heritage. More importantly, if we do not preserve and publicise the remarkable achievements represented by our heritage we have failed those who came before us, and what is worse, we have failed the generations to come.
Read the background to this story
and then read these pages, adapted from the new booklet Heritage of the Powerhouse MuseumPHM is an item of world heritage It is the nation’s only Arts and Sciences Museum The heritage of the buildings IS important …… and the museum has its own heritage. The exhibits’ home is this museum. This museum commemorates the bicentenary of Australia, 1988 If we trash the museum, we trash our reputation We ignore the personal dimension at our peril. And the move makes no financial sense at all.
