We went to the Portrait Gallery and found they had a Pub Rock exhibition on. It was great to see photos and portraits of many of Australia’s classic bands. Bit of a trip down memory lane. I saw many of these bands in Melbourne in the 70’s and 80’s We also enjoyed the rest of the collection. Well done

For some reason, portraiture is one of the most engaging forms of art; at least from those offered in the traditional gallery format. Maybe it's just the human curiosity, wanting to look at and learn about other humans and their lives, but despite COVID meaning a much-reduced gallery space to look around, the National Portrait Gallery did not disappoint. The gallery offered free entry, and both the National Photographic and Darling Portrait Prize exhibitions offered insight into the beauty that can be captured through a lens or brush. Absolutely worth a look around.

Well presented and organised from the easy booking time to spending adequate time to study the display. The team have structured the access well to account for the current pandemic and one is given ample opportunity to visit. The current portrait display is a little too slanted toward indigenous entries however and whilst I have a number of original items myself I thought the quality on display was a little underwhelming. Having said that one of the items was outstanding yet didn’t rate a mention. In the eye of the beholder...and that is why this venue is so important to the nation. Well done to those early pioneers that worked hard to create the gallery.

During COVID, visits are timed, must book online. This gallery is exceptional, saw the Photographic portrait & Darling portrait galleries. The gallery also has the best cafe in the museums precinct. A great range of food (including vegan and vegetarian), extremely well priced.

This gallery is exceptional. Free entry. Great art and a superb book/gift shop. The gallery also has the best cafe in the museums precinct. A great range of food (including vegan and vegetarian), extremely well priced and also has wines by the glass and beer available. On a sunny day the terrace is wonderful.
