The MCA is the only major public gallery in Sydney with a serious interest in contemporary art. It has fared well under the directorship of Elizabeth Ann Macgregor, a feisty and inspirational Scot who has spearheaded the museum’s renaissance. As well as the always interesting temporary shows, many from key overseas institutions and artists, the MCA has added a new gallery on level four to display its permanent collection. At the time of writing Macgregor had just booked the work of Danish-born artist Olafur Eliasson, whose mist show mimicking the Earth’s atmosphere wowed visitors at London’s Tate Modern a few years back; the exhibition will be put on in 2009.

The MCA Store is replete with art books of every stripe: scholary works, collections of prints, catalogues, coffee table art pieces and more, for everyone from the interested fan to the trained expert. They've also got loads of gift ideas. Address Circular Quay Foyer, Lvl 1, Telephone 02 9245 2458 Opening Times Mon-Sun.

The MCA Cafe offers spectacular views over Circular Quay and fine modern Australian cuisine.

With a Seasonal Menu featuring quality Australian produce, the MCA Cafe is also fully licensed and offers a wide selection of Wines by the bottle or glass.

Regularly cited in the Good Food Guide, the MCA Cafe is an ideal place for lunch, morning or afternoon tea as part of your Museum visit, business lunch, or larger function.
