Art Gallery of Western Australia reviews
All but one section is closed and access is from around the back. There are no activities or talks or tours, just a tiny display of student work. Not really worth working out how to get in... more »
On our visit in March renovations were in place’ so the gallery was very. limited which was disappointing. Staff were very helpful & pointed out aspects of the displays on view more »
One of the best places to visit in the city. Ground floor focuses on contemporary art and the latest in the local arena. Top floors offer art pieces tested by time. A nice flow overall. There's also space for private/corporate events. Attentive team on the ground. Has a very good shop and cafe withing the master building. Very close to other attractions.
Great place to see some awesome art from across Australia and some from much further afield. Great place to bring kids and get them away from screens for a time...although there are some exhibitions that contain screens. Definitely worth visiting for some relaxation.
