About Us

RMOA-103 v2.jpg

Rockhampton Museum of Art is where our region is inspired, engaged and enriched by art. 

We’re here to engage with our regional community and its visitors through programs that encourage participation and appreciation of the visual arts. We’re doing this by providing access to new national practising artists and arts, and by always acknowledging the culture and heritage of our region.

Our permanent collection is one of national significance. It tracks Australia’s modernist movement with artworks by significant Australian artists and continues to collect contemporary art by living artists.

This is where art is shared, bringing major touring exhibitions to the region, and showcasing the region’s own creativity to the world. We’re here to celebrate our place and our people of Central Queensland, showcasing artists and artworks with a deep resonance to our region.

Fundamental to this is our engagement with First Nations at every level from the beginning. Rockhampton Museum of Art will amplify the voices of First Nations people – enabling First Nations voices to represent Australia’s history, acknowledging First Nations knowledge, and increasing First Nations audiences. Rockhampton Museum of Art is a place of community and gathering.

We run learning workshops and activities, engaging our local community and visitors alike through programs, exhibitions, and building on the strong culture and creative spirit which has always been part of our place.

Open to all and alive with energy, this is where creativity and community comes together in a natural meeting place by the banks of Tunuba in Darumbal Country.
