What people are saying:

Tour to Australia, this stop came to Sydney, to Sydney rocks punching. Across the street from the Sydney Opera House, this museum, which was opened in May 1989, exhibits contemporary art works from Australia, the Asia-Pacific region and around the world. The museum, which was owned early by the University of Sydney and has been largely funded since 2001 by the South Wales Government and the Australian Parliament, has a three-story collection of more than 4,000 pieces, including 3,060 donated by artist John Power, mostly from the post-1960 period. The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day, extended Wednesday to 9 p.m., Christmas breaks, no fee to visit.

Additional Information


Sydney’s Museum of Contemporary Art sits inside an Art Deco-style building and features revolving exhibits of artists from around the world. The MCA was established at the will of artist John Power, who bequeathed his personal fortune to instruct future generations on the beauty of contemporary art. The museum moved into the former building of the Maritime Services Board in 1989 and, after numerous extensions and renovations, it has become the impressive gallery that visitors see today.
