  • Small but fascinating gallery with an eclectic collection. We explored most of the rooms and the mix of fine art and sculptures. It was easy to get to on the tram.

  • A great place with great masterpieces. It’s free to access. They have guided tours happening at 3 different times during the day. It wasn’t crowded, but the place wasn’t deserted too. The art gallery has a cafeteria too. From art to ornaments to biological concepts to aboriginal art, this place displays a great collection even with origins from other countries. I would say it takes atleast about an hour to properly cover the place. It’s quite big. No parking since it’s in the heart of the city. You have to park somewhere else and get here.
  • The most outstanding collection of Australian impressionist artwork and surprisingly incredible level of European and Japanese art also present. Totally defied my expectations. Staff up front were eager and helpful, and a polite guard explained the story behind one of my fathers favourite paintings.
  • Loved coming to the art gallery, and my little explorer loved it as well, she was more interested then i expected. Art work was amazing, the current Dots display was something you really need to see.
  • I felt so touched. The displaying is wonderful and several different type of art works brings me fresh feeling. It’s FREE~ I love here! Strongly recommend to anyone~
  • Great art gallery with free entry! A beautiful building with many artworks to see. There is a restaurant inside with good cafes and food. Highly recommended!
