I love art and I can appreciate art that I don't really like either. There were some really interesting art in here and then there was just some completely bizarre and pointless art in my personal opinion. It is free so that's a plus and it's right on the harbor so if you're walking by and need to pass the... More

Yes, I visit here just for the book and gift shop. A simply eclectic collection are our there arty creative books. And then there's the gifts which you just don't find elsewhere. Oh and the art!

Focuses on several different artists and various mediums - some very interesting pieces. Have only been there this one time but the displays are ever changing so I imagine it's good to check back from time to time. Something for every taste - little restaurant on the top of the new section.

A great place to go and look around. We went in there today and had a superb time. Spent most of our time on the first floor going around the En-Er-Gise exhibits. The displays and interactive parts of it were informative and interesting.

The MCA is one of the nicest art museums I've visited in a while. It has a great permanent collection and is really well laid out. Pop in at the rooftop cafe for a quick coffee break and take in the magnificent view.

I always love visiting the MCA. It is located in The Rocks, so there are plenty of transport options to get there, the exhibitions are reasonably priced and the museum is not too big to try and see everything on the one day. Highly recommend this if you are interested in modern art.

Many floors of very good artworks by various artists. There is an eatery on the top floor with fantastic views of the city and harbour. There are numerous workers located throughout that are more than willing to help and if asked given insights into the artworks. Located in a top location right at circular quay.
