What a great museum! Not many pictures (compared to eg Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam), but really good quality. We were lucky, since the triennale (indiginous art) was on. And that part was most impressive. What an art, what emotions.

This is worth a look if you get time. Lots to see depends on what you like to see at museums and galleries. Plenty staff about.

Love going to the NGA. It changes every time I'm there. I try to get to see the special exhibitions that they run. I'm not a fan of the building, just the works of art themselves.

We visited the NGA yesterday.
I'm not an art gallery fan normally and wasn't all that interested in most of the displays.
However, after viewing the indigenous display, I was very impressed.
The works of Albert Namatjira are breath taking. Seeing this display alone made the trip worthwhile.
My wife enjoyed the Asian exhibition.
