“Iconic art gallery”
Reviewed March 13, 2012

The Art Gallery of NSW has a stunning permanent display of Australian art, and a great modern art collection downstairs. All free! The cafe serves great, reasonably priced food (this applies to most art galleries, which is handy to know for tourists). Special exhibitions are held throughout the year, and are good value. A great place to spend a day out of the sun or rain!

“Not a bad little gallery!”
Reviewed March 9, 2012

OK, so it's not the Prado, Louvre or Uffizi, but it's not a bad little gallery in this far flung corner of the world. A good collection (one or two pieces by many famous artists) and nicely set out. Our little gallery is something for Sydney to be proud of.

Always a wonderdul day at the Gallery - but a little more crowded with Picasso there. The shop has some wonderful and reasonably priced souvenirs to please all ages.
