Getting Here

Both the Macleay Museum and the University Art Gallery are closed to the public as we prepare for the opening of the Chau Chak Wing Museum in 2020.

Staff will continue to take public and research inquiries about the collections during this period of transition. The Nicholson Museum will remain open to the public throughout 2019.

Nicholson Museum

The Nicholson Museum is located at the southern entrance of the Quadrangle at the University of Sydney.
