“Love our Art Gallery”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

My favourite place in all of Sydney. Late night visits on Wednesday are just magical for me. The night lights, the music echoing from the restauran and even hush voices of visitors are all in harmony to make the Gallery much more special to me

“Nice museum with nice collection + restaurant with live music”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

Nice architecture, nice museum and nice collection. You can reach the NSW Gallery with a short walk from the National Library or the Cathedral.
Museum collection spans from Antique works of art to Contemporary paintings.
There is a restaurant on the basement and they often play live music.

“Sydney Modern Exhib. Till 7th October 2013”
Reviewed August 26, 2013 via mobile

This is a very interesting exhibition & one I really enjoyed. If you are visiting the Gallery in Sydney then also include this extra delight. The Art Gallery is free but this is an extra cost and well worth it.

“Beautiful, calm spot in central Sydney”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

Wonderful building, amazingly quiet when I was there. Take the free tour at 11am of the Aboriginal collection. There's also a highlights tour that should be interesting. After that walk through the Botanical Gardens back to the Opera House.
