See Website

The museum, which sits majestically along the western promenade of Circular Quay (the landing place for the First Fleet) occupies some of Sydney’s prime real estate. In 2012, the landmark underwent a $52 million head-to-toe revamp: now doubled in size, there are three additional galleries showcasing artworks from Australian and international artists, as well as a new rooftop sculpture terrace with views over Circular Quay. Known for provocative and well-curated exhibits, the museum draws upon its impressive permanent collection, which includes a comprehensive selection of Aboriginal paintings. Free admission (excluding some special exhibits).
