A must-see in Albury is Murray Art Museum Albury (MAMA), the heart of art and culture on the Murray. One of the most visited art venues outside of Sydney, the museum has earned a reputation for its innovative, original exhibitions, featuring some of the best contemporary artists in Australia, and from around the world.
Nestled between the bustling retail and restaurant precinct of Dean Street and the open greenspace of QEII Square, the recently redeveloped museum combines heritage features with light filled contemporary spaces.
The iconic building is home to the city’s extensive art collection, and some of the most exciting new art in Australia. With up to six exhibitions at any time, MAMA is focussed on living artists, stories and ideas that are relevant today.
The vibrant museum offers guided tours, art classes and workshops, artist talks, kids art activities and school holiday programs. Make sure you check the calendar of events for the dates you are visiting, you might even stumble upon the buzz of an opening night or live event!
Open daily, the museum is the perfect place to escape the weather, be inspired, meet an artist, get creative, learn something new, take a break, shop Australian designers, or enjoy a coffee, wine or meal on the gardened terrace. Embrace art and culture in the heart of Albury. Entry is free.
