This exhibition of royal portraits, from the Tudor period to the Windsors, was outstanding! The Bendigo Art Gallery is a must-see. I'm certainly planning to return for the exhibition of Balenciaga gowns in August-September

We saw the Tudors to Windsors display and it was excellent. The rooms were comfortable to work through and the display was stunning. Especially loved the shots of the current Windsors. We worth the drive up from Melbourne.

This is a must do. The gallery has spent up to $1/2 million getting this exhibition to Australia. Some items have never been out of the UK.

A fabulous experience. So well done- a credit to the curators of the art gallery. We drove 1000km for this exhibition and it was well worth it. Highly recommended.

This was a most interesting collection of royal portraits from London. The kids in our family were fascinating with it as well as the adults. We spent a good couple of hours there.
