  • A great place to see a wide range of modern art and particularly in the next few months as they celebrate 10 years of opening. 
  • Wonderfull gallery with fantastic exhibits. Nice to have a quality gallery to visit whilst on holiday. 
  • Great modern art gallery, lovely setting along the Brisbane River. Easy to get there from down town by the City Cat ferry service and a pleasant stroll along the river bank. We had a tasty light lunch...  more »

  • Sensational morning wandering through the gallery. A wide range of art. From Jomon era (2500BC) Japanese ceramics, to more contemporary works by some masters. Very impressive indigenous art collection from Australia/New Guinea.
  • Nice gallery, love the use of water and sculptures throughout. Unfortunately the Australian exhibits were closed when I was there.
  • Nice little niche art collection. May not be at the scale of National Gallery of Victoria, but the overall design in terms of layout, spacing and decoration speaks of confidence and dedication in the local and regional art scene.
  • Brilliant space. This whole are has grown into its modernist skin as a building as the years have rolled on. Worth a visit. Love the water inside and out.
  • What a great space. Similar to GOMA beautiful architecture and a robust collection. It is worth having a wander around there for the space itself. The green space around it is a nice place to meet up with a friend. Highly recommend it if you are in Brisbane.
