Free admission to the general gallery exhibits. View some great artworks, both paintings and various other art forms from around the world and from Australia. There are some awesome works here. A few times a year the NGA has special exhibitions, currently showing Toulouse Lautrec. Keep tuned during 2013 as it is the centenary of Canberra and there is another exhibition coming mid-year.

It was worth the trip from Melbourne to see this exhibition and all the other exhibits in the other rooms are also worth a visit. We spent the whole day in the gallery and enjoyed everything we saw, although the cafe is rather expensive, the food is better than average.

The national Gallery and especially the Sculpture Garden area when the mist is on should not be missed BUT the cafe and food is overpriced - just walk across the pedestrian bridge to the national Portrait Gallery for a great coffee and good food that is much better priced

I love the National Gallery. The exhibitions are fantastic. The Toulouse-lautrec is on at the moment, and is a must see! A big tip is to get the audio tour.

The pork belly was overcooked and accompanying salad ordinary. Wine was lovely, as were the fries, and my son''s sausage roll!
