Museum of Contemporary Art Australia


The MCA is currently closed to the public until further notice to help protect the health of all visitors and staff and to minimise the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) in the state. 

Welcome to Australia’s Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA), dedicated to exhibiting, collecting and interpreting the work of today’s artists.

On 29th March 2012, a bold, new and significantly expanded Museum of Contemporary Art is unveiled to the public. The redevelopment transforms the Museum, with spacious new galleries including an entire floor dedicated to the MCA Collection; the National Centre for Creative Learning with state-of-the-art technology; public spaces that embrace one of the world’s most famous locations, and a series of site-specific artists’ commissions.

Architect Sam Marshall in association with the Government Architect’s Office has created a contemporary building that responds to its unique location and meets the needs of the Museum, bringing together old and new to create a context for engaging artists with audiences for the 21st century.
