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 at 172 Showground Road, Castle Hill. Car entry is via the gates on Showground Road or Windsor Road. Please note that there is no right turn access into the Showground Road gate.

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.
