MCA Late

Stay up late with the MCA on Friday nights during summer.

From Friday 15 January, MCA will be opening their doors until the sun sets on the working week. Take your time to stroll through our incredible free exhibitions or take in spectacular views at their rooftop cafe over a drink.

From Friday 22 January, expect the unexpected each week. Wander through their galleries and you never know what you may find. No Friday will be the same – something special will be hidden within the Museum. Try your luck and you might find the evening’s guest – a musician, artist, poet or performer – who will hold intimate performances through the night. Follow them on their socials to find out more about what's in store.

Your favourite after-dark activities are moving to Fridays as well. Beats will flow with Sounds on the Terrace, their monthly live music event featuring emerging talent, or you can unleash your creativity at their always popular Sundown Sketch Club.*

If you feel inspired after your visit, the MCA Store will be open for late-night shopping.

Entry is free.

*Sundown Sketch Club is ticketed.
