Museum of Contemporary Art

The Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) opened in 1991, but has been significantly expanded and renovated since then. Today, the new-look MCA is a major tourist attraction, particularly for artists, contemporary art lovers and art students, and is also an outstanding example of art-deco design. It is located between the historic ‘Rocks’ district and ‘Circular Quay’ at Sydney Harbour, site of some of the city’s iconic landmarks. The MCA is committed to the collection and display of contemporary work by artists from across the world and Australia, and its continuously changing variety of exhibitions ensures something refreshingly new every time.

  • Down a hot cup of coffee, as you take in breathtaking views from the rooftop café and sculptured terrace of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney.
  • Feast your eyes on 275 original Aboriginal bark paintings, or the 600 Aboriginal artworks in the ‘Maningrida’ collection.
  • Stop at Sydney’s MCA shop, and leaf through some of the priceless books on contemporary art, architecture and design in its comprehensive collection.

The Museum of Contemporary Art is conveniently accessible as it is located in close proximity to the public transportation hub of Circular Quay. As a result, visitors can opt for bus, train or ferry services which connect this hub from most areas of the city, and then walk a short distance to the museum. Government-run buses and ferries are the best and most inexpensive options to access and explore main attractions around the harbour, including the MCA. Sydney’s roads are well organized and driver-friendly, so you may hire a car or ride a taxi to the museum if you prefer to.
