Go in a console (gnome-terminal for example) and launch : ifconfig
You will see something like this :

stgraber@laptop:~$ ifconfig
eth0 Lien encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:0E:8E:00:62:89
          inet adr:192.168.0.3 Bcast:192.168.0.255 Masque:255.255.255.0
          adr inet6: fe80::20e:8eff:fe00:6289/64 Scope:Lien
          UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
          RX packets:269216 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:14727 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 lg file transmission:1000
          RX bytes:393924420 (375.6 MiB) TX bytes:2862644 (2.7 MiB)
          Interruption:11 Mémoire:22000000-22002000

In this example, you can see the MAC address after the HWaddr.
In this example, my MAC address was : 00:0E:8E:00:62:89
