  • Disappointed with the art that was available at the time of our visit. Not a lot to see Very helpful staff 
  • I have been to this Art Gallery at least 5 times over the years and it never ceases to amaze me. I have found it different every time. Lovely on a hot day. CafĂ© is great to have lunch. 
  • What an amazing Gallery great tourist shop with interesting goodies to purchase. Seeing the Marilyn Monroe exhibition just put the icing on the cake for a weekend away in Bendigo

  • 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.
