Art Gallery of Western Australia reviews
Massive, grey walled edifice. Feels as if it is native to Bosnia. The 'art works' don't. You truly need to be in rude heath and in possession of your own provisions as at 10 minutes to closing time...

Although this is a large airy building it rather lacks something. The Indigenous exhibition. You also are not allowed to take in the smallest handbags even though mine was only big enough for my...

My friends and I had an amazing time at the gallery today. It had been years since I visited, so it was lovely to experience some of the updates, including the gorgeous rooftop bar with stunning views of Perth city, great drinks and warm and welcoming staff. I loved looking at all the interesting glass work as part of the Tom Malone Prize. The Collective Ground Exhibition was also beautifully curated. If you haven't been to the gallery in a while, put it back on your list to do sooner rather than later.
Great Museum with interesting exhibitions. Free entry which is amazing. Loved the kids area with all the blocks to build something- spent some time there even as adults :). Great rooftop as well for a nice city view.
Me and my friend went here and had such a fun time. All the art work here was very nice. Only bad thing was that the security guy was basically chasing us as soon as we'd walked through the door. He said we weren't allowed to take photos but the security guy on the next floor said we could? The gift shop is very expensive. The young artists work was very impressive 😲
Visited during the week, no crowds so free to explore at a leisurely pace. Staff were very helpful. Exhibitions were amazing, visually stunning and culturally informative..
Great museum. Great architecture and collection. Came here for the Yoshitomo Nara exhibit, great pieces that I never seen before. Been to a few Nara exhibits but this one is very intereting. Great for young children as they have an interactive zone that kids can play and build their own sculpture. Great shop and merchandise too.
