How the new Chau Chak Wing Museum changes thinking

As university faculties are under the pinch nationally, philanthropy has allowed a future ready 21st century museum to lead, by placing embedded education at the heart of contemporary considerations and cross-discipline narratives.

The Chau Chak Wing Museum at the University of Sydney is scheduled to open 18 November, just days ahead of another museum that has received considerable media attention across the year, the WA Museum (opening 21 November).
