Exhibitions

Heritage Centre Exhibition People and PlaceOur exhibition program offers you the opportunity to experience visual arts, crafts and social history of local and national significance. Exhibitions reflect Parramatta’s diverse community and colonial history, or express the creativity of local, regional and national artists.
