  • Slightly smaller gallery that I imagined but so gorgeous! I really enjoyed the alternative approach to curating, having contemporary art mixed with the older collection. The Ramsay Art Prize and Rodin exhibitions are both brilliant?
  • Really cool gallery has a vast mix of art. Enjoyable for all. Plus it's free!
  • Good exhibitions and collection. A nice place to visit.
  • There's a lot of great artwork. Could spend the whole day there
  • A rare building, very beautiful. Cool in the heat as you would expect. One of the largest, if not the largest collection of First Nation Aboriginal artifacts in the country. Some outstanding sculpture including confronting, arresting Post Modern works. Essential for any visit to Adelaide. A cafe and shop along with a variety of community programs including activities for kids as well as adults.
