Museum of Contemporary Art

 

The Museum of Contemporary Art sits impressively overlooking Sydney Cove with an uninterrupted view of the Sydney Opera House and, at its back door, The Rocks district.

 

Officially opened as the Museum of Contemporary Art in 1991 this imposing sandstone building houses up to four floors of contemporary artworks from both national and international artists.

 

At any one time certain floors may be undergoing refurbishment for upcoming exhibitions.

 

The large open spaces of the museum allow for quiet contemplation of the constantly changing artistic works from the present era that uses the current practices and styles of its discipline.
