I love the view from this place and I think the service is good. I would only like more choices in the menu.

Museum of Contemporary Art is always on the must see list when we go to Sydney. If you can get to Light Show by June 5th it is a must see but really any of the exhibitions are great. Make sure you eat at the cafe upstairs amazing views!!

$15 was a very cheap entrance fee for a fantastic display. Loved the beam room, the Box, and my favourite was the stairway. Rest of display in gallery was just enough exhibits to keep you interested without losing interest. Liked the nostalgic Tupperware wall.

The Light show for the Vivid festival was outstanding, it was interesting to find how deeply your mood and feeling are affected by light, particularly some of the "prettier" pieces. Afterwards I did a quick review of the permanent exhibitions and these were interesting as well, particularly some new indigenous art acquisitions and a fascinating moving image piece showing a...

Walk through here whilst other family members did the Sydney Harbor Bridge Climb. This gallery is very interesting and though provoking - and its FREE. Close to Circular Quay and the Rocks too. There is also a cafe on top of the building which provide good views of the harbor.

Having previously thoroughly enjoyed the MCA, I was disappointed to find on my current visit that there were no exhibits on the first floor and paid only entry on the third, effectively leaving one floor. I understand that this is temporary and would recommend a visit in future but in my opinion it is currently not worth the journey.

Genuinely inspiring and thought provoking and yet so seemingly simple. Museum is well laid out, well staffed, friendly, professional, clean and inviting, the installation, through to 5 Jul is truly sublime. The installation by Carlos Cruz Diez "Chromosaturation" was out favourite....really proves what correct lighting has to do with well-being. The light bulb box thingy is a great piece of... More

Dual buildings highlight the complexity of Sydney's culture. Both modern and historic, a mixture of native and colonial and urban. The selections are provoking, the location ideal, and the experience memorable. Grab a latte on the balcony cafe, and meander.

The MCA is located on the foreshore at Circular Quay. Most of the exhibitions are free to browse but there is usually a featured area which has a small charge. It is an eclectic but rather small collection of art. Head to the cafe on the 4th floor for fabulous views over Sydney Opera House and harbour. The MCA is... More
