Getting here

The Chau Chak Wing Museum is opposite the University’s Quadrangle building
Ahead of the new museum opening in August, our events will be held elsewhere on campus.

The Nicholson Museum is now closed

The Nicholson Museum closed 28 February 2020 to allow us to prepare for the opening of the Chau Chak Wing Museum in August. Both the Macleay Museum and the University Art Gallery are also closed to the public.

Museum staff are continuing to take public and research enquiries about the collections during this period of transition.
