It is just amazing! There are new exhibits all the time, so it is never the same experience. When I took my kids, there was an actual Van Gogh on display! It was excellent, and totally worth the trip

fabulous by international standards. I was really impressed by the site and quality of the Olympic show.They should advertise this as a museum for greater interest. Th "Aboriginal" art was most amazing.

I like it, it is cool on a hot summer day, concrete and smooth, art is ok, nothing super special but I guess for Wpg, whatever they can get they do a good job with displaying at the art gallery.

History comes alive at this exhibit. We went with the family who have varying interests and knowledge of Greek Mythology. Everyone enjoyed seeing these beautiful pieces of history right in our own city. the exhibit is well laid out, and you can take as much or as little time as you like in the spacious softly lit galleries.
