  • It's more of a gallery and not a museum. The information provided is scarce and the quality of the works is very variable

  • Completing an initial knowledge of Aboriginal culture, after visiting the South Australian Museum, we went to this particular institution In the Great Local, works of Aboriginal art and craftsmanship are exhibited in particular of Torres Strait Island In addition to an extensive photographic exhibition that allows you to have a reference picture of the life of Aboriginal people, there are many works characterized by their particular designs and colors. Truly fascinating Free entry

  • Fringe Festival: Hallowed ... moving, thought provoking production... well worth seeing.
  • Aboriginal art museum? Like all government subsidised institutions, give it a miss if you are able.
  • Please be respectful that photography is not allowed. Great to see some diverse indigenous art and some incredible pieces for sale. Helpful staff. Just wish there was more of it!
  • Love to work with Nish, she is really friendly and supportive xx Love Indigenous art and music xxx
  • Not really a museum, more of a tourist curios shop. There's a few forlorn paintings by Aboriginal artists, some movie on loop, and a very expensive shop. Disappointing.
