I attended the Museum with my 4 year old. We enjoyed the exhibition "Sip My Ocean" by Pipilotti Rist. It was a very immersive experience. It was a little confusing as to what entry allowed you to do. We ended up only seeing one exhibition...More

Museum isn’t that big so it can be visited fairly quickly. Most of exhibitions are as well free of charge.

Centrally located to stop by the MCA for the pristine exhibit that may be taking place. However on the evening of the 31st of December, the roof top is transformed by the Points of Difference Travel and Events organisation, into a evening under the stars...More

We have toured contemporary art museums all over the world and sadly this one isn’t up to scratch. The space and location are beautiful but let down by sophomoric attempts at modern art. Pass and head over to the real gallery in the botanical gardens....More

Located in the heart of the Rocks with all of the Sydney landmarks in full view from the rooftop bar. Nice, casual and relaxing way to spend an afternoon

Went to see Sip My Ocean and found it to be very disappointing. The actual museum is located at the Rocks which was its only plus n the day. Once inside it was uninteresting. Entry on the day was $22 which would of been OK...More

The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and
sailors from the old nation. As the oldest
neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone
streets host more than 100 heritage sites and
buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney,
Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi
“ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the
waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The
