Sydney experiences and attractions

Museum of Contemporary Art

The Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) is Australia's leading museum dedicated to exhibiting, interpreting and collecting contemporary art from across Australia and around the world. From major thematic exhibitions and surveys of established artists, solo exhibitions, new work by emerging artists, painting and sculpture to new media, the MCA program covers the complete range and diversity of contemporary art. It attracts significant contemporary exhibitions annually. The building has just undergone a $500 million refurbishment resulting in more gallery space. Located at Circular Quay on the edge of Sydney Harbour, the Museum of Contemporary Art is housed in the former Maritime Services building - a fine example of late Art Deco architecture. The MCA Store is one of Sydney's unique shopping destinations specialising in Australian and international contemporary art and culture publications and unique gifts, while the MCA Café offers modern Australian cuisine with spectacular views of Sydney Harbour.
