“YOU MUST!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

The MCA is a fantastic gallery and is very professionally managed. The exhibitions are brilliant and FREE! There, now you have no excuse not to go ;) The volunteers are all very knowledgeable and friendly. They love to discuss the works and always have some fascinating insight.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

The extension to the old building is wonderful and the cafe and views from it are great. Not to mention the artwork!

“Just a quick pop over!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

The art that you will find is a mixture of wall paintings, digital, model displays and other interactive art displays.

Floor by floor you can see a variety of works local and international artists.
The cafe is great upstairs for a few drinks and lunch.

It's good to visit for under an hour.. not entirely special than the Art Gallery of NSW.

“Just 'meh'”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

That's comparing it to all the other Contemporary art museums I've been to- this one is lowest on my list. I wasn't really impressed the whole time, there are some nice pieces but everything that you'd expect which is stale for a contemporary art museum. Even Brisbane's blew it out of the water.
