MAMA Ranks #1 of Best Reasons to Visit Albury


“A new contemporary art gallery is drawing attention to this border town, and there’s plenty more to do and see” – Elisabeth Knowles

According to The Daily Telegraph,

“The hottest new tourist attraction in town is the Murray Art Museum Albury (MAMA). Opened in October, the $10.5 million-dollar redevelopment has an edgy collection of Australian contemporary fine art, photography and indigenous works. Its first major international exhibition will be Marilyn: Celebrating an American Icon, from February 12 to May 8. The museum’s Canvas Eatery, run by chef Tim Tehan, formerly of Melbourne cafe Birdman Eating, is up and running… Keep your eyes peeled for floor-level cubbyholes displaying concealed artworks, which have been installed especially for kids to enjoy”.

The Murray Art Museum Albury (MAMA) is the “hottest new attraction in town”, according to The Daily Telegraph. The recent article features the top 18 reasons to visit Albury, with MAMA holding the number one spot.
