Owner description: The Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA) is a single institution located across two adjacent river-side buildings in the Cultural Precinct at Brisbane's South Bank. QAGOMA holds a collection of historical, modern and contemporary art, and stages a dynamic program of Australian and international exhibitions. We are home to the Children's Art Centre which collaborates on interactive artworks with leading artists from around the world, and the Australian Cinematheque, the only dedicated cinema facility in an Australian art museum. QAGOMA operates its own retail outlets and cafes and restaurants, proceeds from which support the Gallery.

Great building and facilities. Shame the modern art is not in same gallery. Great selection of glass pieces but some incorrectly labelled.

We’re glad to hear you enjoyed your visit to the Queensland Art Gallery and thank you for taking the time to review the Gallery.

The Gallery's holdings of glass are labelled according to the most recent cataloguing data, with as much information supplied on each work as possible. We have passed on your comment to the curator of our exhibition 'Glass from the Collection' and they will review the labels. Any further information about material and methods would be very gratefully received.

We do hope you have the pleasure of returning to the Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art soon.

Regards QAGOMA

A place to go for everybody as you can find something that you would like. A place for quiteness and contemplation. The are many really good exhibitions held here . Take your own snack as it could be a bit costly.

The exhibits are always interesting but we usually go when there is a special exhibition on. The building is very modern, quiet and big enough to spend a few hours at least. There is a cafe for refreshments. It is always a pleasant place to visit. If you're not into art try some people watching.
