Lots of beautiful things to see both inside and out.
Our private guide Marg from Canberra Secrets improved our experience by her knowledge and the information she provided us during our tour around the gallery.
Although we thoroughly enjoyed it all our very favorite part of the tour was the James Turrell Skyspace, it was amazing.

Only worth a visit if there is a special collection on show. Then incorporate the whole Gallery tour.

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.
