Due to the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) throughout Australia and the resulting restrictions imposed by the Federal and State governments, Museum of Contemporary Art has been temporarily closed until further notice. We will keep you up to date any developments and please stay safe.
The Museum of Contemporary Art is an art museum dedicated to the collection and exhibition of contemporary art from all over Australia and the world. Abbreviated to MCA, the museum is an excellent destination for art lovers interested in contemporary art.
The first thing that you will notice is the architectural design of the MCA. Housed in what was once the Maritime services building, this design captures the essence and classic finish of late Art Deco architectural style.
