Anne & Gordon Samstag Museum of Art, Adelaide

4.0
#11 of 18 in Museums in Adelaide
Samstag Museum of Art presents a changing exhibitions program of contemporary visual art and art of the past that has relevance for us today.

The museum has been named in honour of two distinguished American benefactors to Australian culture, whose remarkable bequest provides opportunities for Australian artists to study overseas with the Samstag scholarship.

Our ambition is to present South Australian audiences with a full diversity of the contemporary visual arts, in all its forms, and of a quality equal to anything that can be found interstate, or for that matter, internationally.

Free entry - all welcome!

  • Great Australian cinema exhibit. That thong dress!
  • This small art gallery should really have more visitors as it can be great to explore.
  • Impressive art space that regularly hosts challenging or cutting edge exhibitions.
