The state government has given its strongest indication yet that the Powerhouse Museum in Ultimo could remain open in some form, a move that has concerned some of those backing its relocation to Parramatta.

Minister for the Arts Don Harwin announced on Tuesday a new period of consultation and preparation of a final business case for the planned move of the museum which the government said "could include keeping some Powerhouse presence at the current site in Ultimo".
