  • I've been here for several exhibitions now; wedding gowns, the dresses of both Grace Kelly & Marilyn Monroe. The latest for the opening of the Toni Maticevski Exhibition. Great to see an aussie get some space here for their body of work. Lovely, friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic staff. Plenty of local places for a great coffee afterwards.
  • What a fantastic gallery! Great collection and amazing exhibitions. Loved the Marilyn Monroe exhibition! Will be back.
  • Well worth including in your itinerary if you're making a day trip to Bendigo, or having a weekend break. With a very eclectic range of pieces on display, there's plenty to discover.
  • Great gallery. Has some good exhibits including the Marilyn Munro special earlier this year (2016).
  • Saw the Marilyn exhibit before it closed - but the Gallery itself is a wonderful spot to visit any time of the year.
