The Museums Discovery Centre is a collaboration between the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences (MAAS), Australian Museum and Sydney Living Museums. It is located via the TAFE gate on Green Road, just off Showground Road at Castle Hill.

Permanent exhibitions include displays of machines, technology, and transport, domestic appliances and toys, architecture and design, scientific instruments and specimens of animals, minerals and plants.

A visit to the MDC also provides you with a rare opportunity to learn about museum collecting, conservation and research practices.
