Owner description: Lots to see at Mbantua Art Gallery in Alice Springs! Our specialty lies in fine artwork from the Utopia region of Central Australia. If you are after larger pieces of art, or looking for an investment piece, we also have the Mbantua Lane Showcase Gallery which you can view on request. In addition to our paintings, we have created a range of souvenirs and gifts called Utopia Australia Giftware. These items are made using our very own art designs. Royalties are paid to the artists giving them a continuing stream of income. In the Gallery you will also find unique giftwares and jewellery sourced from around Australia including sandstone art from Coober Pedy. When visiting Alice Springs, make sure you have plenty of time to browse through our extensive range of art!

Well, its a wonderful place if you want to see aboriginal art and particularly the stunning work of Albert Namatjira. Mind you, there is much more. Its small and wont take long to visit but very well worth it.

The art displayed in this gallery is fabulous, but walk down the back and look at their information section and museum. It is absolutely outstanding and is not advertised. Keep walking to the back of the shop, it is so worth it.

Thanks for your nice review. We are glad you enjoyed our Cultural Museum. You are right, we really need to advertise it more!

This gallery has many pieces of indigenous art to look at and some are not badly priced but some are very expensive. If you want aboriginal art there are cheaper places to pick up good art which is just as good.

The people here were GREAT! So friendly and helpful despite me popping in and out about a million times, and really knowledgeable about local issues too.

Our guidebook said that there was a charge for the museum portion of this gallery, but it was free when we were there. Owner was extremely informative about the artwork in the gallery. Right on the main pedestrian mall so you cannot miss it. Well worth a visit.

Our Cultural Museum used to be much bigger a few years ago. We downsized in 2011 but decided to maintain a portion of the museum, free of charge to visitors, because we felt it was so important for people to learn about the Aboriginal culture.
