“Some interesting Australian paintings”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

Small gallery but with some interesting Australian paintings, particularly a wall of Sidney Nolan heads. Free entry. Good place to spend an hour or two.

“Great gallery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

This gallery is small but worthwhile. Small galleries can be more enjoyable than extensive ones when they are filled with decent paintings.

I would return to see he paintings again.

“A beautiful building with an eclectic collection of art.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

First of all, it was highly air conditioned and in the 44 degree weather, a great way to spend some cool hours. The Australian artwork was first class, with variety from historical to modern. And the special exhibits well displayed, varied and interesting. I especially liked the display of art selected by Adelaide residents. Worth a look.

“nice example of Australian art”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

nice museum with a good collection of Aussie inspired art. it's a lovely building in a nice location. also free. i guess i would've liked more of an international presence (one rembrant sketch there - seemed out of place) but again, overall i recommend it
