The Museum of Contemporary Art has been showcasing the works of Australian artists in galleries designed to celebrate solo exhibitions since it first opened its doors back in 1991. The museum is housed in the former Maritime Services Board Building and offers visitors incredible views of the picturesque harbor and iconic opera house. Those who enjoy the Museum of Modern Art in New York City will likely find similar experimental work here. Travelers say that while the museum is small, it’s worth the trip and a quiet café on the fourth floor is perfect for post-museum tea or weekend brunch with a view.
The museum is located at Circular Quay West and is easily accessible via bus, ferry and train. It is open Monday through Wednesday and Friday through Sunday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. On Thursday the museum is open until 9 p.m.
