From the 25 November 2016 both the Macleay Museum and the University Art Gallery will close, as we prepare for the opening of the Chau Chak Wing Museum scheduled for completion in late 2018. 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 until late 2018.
The University of Sydney’s museums and art galleries are located in close proximity to each other, within or beside the Quadrangle on the Camperdown Campus, a few kilometres from the centre of Sydney. Admission to both museums and the gallery is free.
The Macleay Museum is located on the top floor of the Macleay Building in Science Road, adjacent to the Quadrangle. The museum entrance is in Gosper Lane at the western end of the Macleay Building.
The Nicholson Museum is located at the southern entrance of the Quadrangle.
The University Art Gallery is located inside the War Memorial Arch on the northern side of the Quadrangle, opposite the Macleay Building (Science Road).
Casual parking on the Camperdown Campus is avaliable, but parking fees apply. You need to obtain and correctly display a ticket from the Pay and Display machines located around the campus.
