The Nicholson Museum is now closed
The Nicholson Museum closed 28 February 2020 to allow for preparation of the new Chau Chak Wing Museum which is scheduled to open in November 2020. Both the Macleay Museum and the University Art Gallery are also closed to the public.
The Chau Chak Wing Museum will unite the University’s Nicholson, Macleay and University Art collections under one roof, with new research facilities, engaging programs for the public and learning opportunities for students. Museum staff are continuing to take public and research enquiries about the collections during this period of transition.
