This building is very impressive, it would be intersting to know a little more of its history but that was not easy to source. The collection is stunning, some great aboriginal works, and some very famous European masters. Highly recommended.

My family and I always visit the Gallery when in Sydney and we have become quite familiar with it. There are always special exhibitions (last time we visited it was Dream Symbolism - before that, Picasso) and the permanent exhibits are well worth regular perusal.

It doesn't compare well with Canberra's ANG, given the ANG's sculpture garden is superb and the Art Gallery of NSW seems to have just been plopped into it's environment without attempt at artistic integration... but, in every other way, it's a reliably energising experience.

BTW, for film buffs there's a great selection of DVD's in the gallery's shop and I can never resist buying a few...

Gorgeous Gallery, not quite got the collection that European galleries would have but still a superb collection and nicely laid out.

We spent most of a day at the gallery looking at its extensive collection and enjoyed a fine lunch at the gallery cafe with a view over the harbour.
