  • We visited the museum when they were between their special exhibits - so only saw their standard exhibits. They have a nice collection over two floors that provide a variety of art pieces. Write-ups f...  more »
  • When I visited there was a temporary collection of craft work from the Pacific region which was colourful. An interesting Brougal painting is worth studying. 
  • Nice tour (despite the Sunday world), interesting (aborigine art exhibition) and... free! To go absolutely!

  • 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.
