Travelled from Wagga especially to visit this gallery and see the two exhibitions - The Body Beautiful in Ancient Greece and Undressed. Both exhibitions were well worth the entry fee, and the exhibition building has a lovely ambience. The staff are friendly and helpful. There is parking nearby which cost $2.60 for a day, and it was a pleasant walk... More

Saw the exhibits from the British Museum--price a tad high for those but it made the Bendigo trip. Do have la good lunch in their attached restaurant, it is worth it!

This gallery draws me from Sydney every year through its imaginative collaboration with the Victoria and Albert Museum in London which supplies regular stunning fashion-related collections, as well as other sources of art and sculpture. Its standing collection is also interesting, highlighting late Victorian art from the period of Bendigo's gold wealth days. The collections are always professionally displayed and... More

Both exhibits were stunning! We took the 7 am train from Melbourne arriving 2 hours later after a very comfortable journey, as was the return journey late that day after we had satisfied our cultural urges! The exhibits were well presented & especially exciting as the Body Beautiful exhibition is touring internationally but will be shown in no other Australian... More
