  • With lots of familiar and regular items on display, the special and quirky temporary displays are also well worth the visit. A nice gift shop.  more »
  • It's like a normal Arts Gallery, but with a unique design. Features seasonal attractions, and unfortunately at the time I was none of my business, but still worth the walk.

  • One of Brisbane's better cultural activities - a variety of different exhibitions on any visit and enough to pique your interest. Not necessarily the world's top masters but enough interesting themes ...  more »

  • I often come here to enjoy the peaceful ambience and relax in the coffee shop. They are presently focusing on Indigenous art. I am not really into art, but this place is in itself a work of art with it's water features, sculptures, gardens and spaciousness.
  • Always something interesting here. Free entry. $16 all day parking nearby. Many comfy seats. The shop and cafe are great.
  • Great collection and terrific staff. Sad that I timed my visit with significant renovation and looking forward to returning to see the transformation
  • I liked the way some of the older Australian artists works are displayed by hanging their precious and endeared works on a metal grid on one wall in the gallery. It is easier to review and discuss with fellow peers. The water feature is always one to behold as a personal experience.
  • Great museum for viewing artworks. Exhibitions are always good and very interesting. You come outside and see the Brisbane River the location is great
