Museum of Contemporary Art Australia

Housed inside the Maritime Services Board building and a modern addition on the western side of Circular Quay, the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA) is the country’s leading institution for modern art. While access to touring international exhibitions from the likes of Tatsuo Miyajima and Annie Leibovitz incurs an entrance fee, the permanent collection of more than 4,000 contemporary works by Australian and Torres Strait Islanders, from Gary Carsley to Lena Yarinkura—plus a rare collection of artist notebooks, music, letters, and sketches—is always free. Come on Wednesday night when the gallery is open until 9 p.m., or for Art Bar on the last Friday of the month. The rooftop café offers glittering views of the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge after dark.

Museum of Contemporary Art Australia

No institution has its finger on the pulse of Australian art and culture quite like this museum close to Circular Quay at the edge of Sydney Harbour. With its 4,000-strong collection of works by paradigm-shifting Australian artists like Tracey Moffatt and Patricia Piccinini, the museum offers an invaluable primer on the homegrown art scene while also hosting thought-provoking international exhibitions. After taking in what's on view, refuel at the fourth-floor MCA Cafe, with its jaw-dropping views of the Opera House and Harbour Bridge.
