I was so glad I took the advice from the ladies at the Information centre at Shepparton to drop in to SAM (Shepparton Art Museum)....I dropped in towards the end of the day, therefore only the ground floor was open. I was interested to see many ceramics, some quirky and very colourful. I was fascinated and fell in love with... More

Well worth a visit to this very convenient museum in the centre of town. Free entry, well known artists and a super sculpture of "Mother and Child". So very lifelike and incredible.

Incredibly interesting place largely with ceramics on display with some paintings, lots of different styles to keep you entertained - love the room with the crosses. Great wheelchair access and lift to upper floor. Very friendly and helpful receptionist

Nearly always free entry. Some exhibitions have a cost. Lots of magic ceramics and paintings. School holidays offer children's activites. Open every day from 10am - 4pm and pn public holidays from 1-4. Small but interesting shop. Cafe in same building. Worth the visit

It's been a while since we visited but it's still just a fabulous gallery with a focus on ceramics. Having said that there are also some terrific portraits and other works of art and there's a cafe next door ..

This is only a small art museum but well worth a visit. I was fascinated by a couple of the artworks and spent some time examining them. There are paintings by well known Australian artists, as well as aboriginal artists, and more recent works. There wasn't a display upstairs when we visited but I am sure it would be well... More

This gallery is always worth a drop in when driving through town. The shows are free and interesting both inside and out. My toddler loved the painted cows outside.

Enjoy the visit to SAM : Shepparton Art Museum. Particularly enjoyed the granite boulders of Mt Buffalo (Arthur Streeton).

We visited here recently and we were so impressed with the high standard of items exhibited some of them were spectacular. If you have a chance to visit here don't miss out going.
