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.

Art was very interesting. Motion videos and good activities for the kids. Would recommend going early as gets quite busy. Interactive art was really good but gallery is a bit strangely laid out however art displays are frequently changing.

Attractive building and cool respite from the hot summer weather. Lots of varied exhibitions and really interesting artworks. Friendly, helpful staff, recommend a visit while taking a tour of the South bank area.

This is a large gallery in a beautiful modern building. Some of the works are breath taking (huge silver snake skeleton rising to the ceiling resting on a man made lake), some quirky (videos of flies juxtaposed with passports), some totally perplexing. The gallery is worth an hour and has the added feature of a very good cafe in the adjacent sculpture garden. Spinach salad with feta and pumpkin....yummy! Quality Oz wines as an accompaniment. Excellent desserts.

I went and saw the Prado exhibit and must compliment the museum staff on the organisation of the display, the ambiance in the cafe with tapas and flamenco music and the ease with which it all managed to come together. From the first time I visited upon moving to Brissy and caught Surrealism to this exhibit, I have found the presentation top notch! Well done and I'm certain to visit again.

Not really a fan of modern art so I was reluctant to go. Pleasantly surprised at the installations and displays. I still don't understand it but really enjoyed it. Had a drink and a bite to eat at one of the cafes there, a bit expensive, but a great view of the river.
