Your heart beats slower, your breathing is calm, your mood is relaxed. This gallery is heaven. The Chinese artwork is fascinating. Just walk through all four floors slowly. Ask questions of the attendants, they are wonderful. I suggest you do the guided tour .. when we visited the 2.00pm tour was just starting. It opened up so much that we... More

I'm keeping this simple. This is a great gallery. A great deal of thought has been put into the collaboration of exhibitions as they tie into each other really well. It won't take you all day to trudge around the gallery and an absence of hordes of cellphone camera users is most appreciated.

I had chance to see Ai Weiwei's Sunflower Seeds! Hoho! The Commune Exhibition is fantastic! We love the place, and the tea house is absolutely a big plus!

This place is as good as anywhere I've been in the world. If you don't stop by here when you visit Sydney, then you haven't done Sydney properly.
