This gallery is world class and the variety ensures that there is something for every taste. The only draw back is time, because you need at a minimum of two days, but more is better to really see and appreciate the full value.

My sister and I went to see the Ben Quilty exhibition and loved it. The photography exhibition Remain in Light was very interesting as well. I particularly liked the documentary photographs. It is a beautiful gallery and we enjoyed our visit very much. The staff are a delight as well.

Great permanent collection, varied and interesting exhibitions. Beautifully curated. Worth a visit if you're in town. Some of the visiting exhibitions have an associated fee. Discounted if you are a friend/member of an affiliated gallery (eg NGV)
