They rotate the exhibitions so you can be inspired or go on your own little tour and enjoy all the art that is available, as well as specific exhibitions. Always recommend it to interstate/overseas travellers

“A real eye opener.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

Took several hours to wander through and see some of the great artworks on display, most memorable for my wife and I was the section displaying the works by that great South Australian artist Anna Platten.
The thought provocing images will stay with us for a long time to come even now we are back home in Perth following our extended weekend in Adelaide.

“Great to get lost in a world of art”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

Adelaide was such a surprisingly fantastic place for me to be artistically inspired. The art gallery was great, with some intriguing modern art to be found.

“Alright, not what I expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

The displays are chronological, so you gradually walk from portraits and landscapes, to more modern movements (Cubism, etc). Interesting little section with Asian art. Not much Aboriginal art, which was my main interest, so I was a bit disappointed. Beautiful building though, and free entry.
