  • Large collection of aboriginal ant and artifacts. Best selection of North QLD shields you will find anywhere. Parts of the Natural History Museum are a bit dated but is being improved. Great museum but you can give the food a miss - have tried it on more than one occasion and wasn’t worth eating. Ordered a tasting platter during the mummy exhibit and it came with multi colored white bread.
  • I totally loved showing my UK Guest around this wonderful gallery. Knowledgeable and engaging staff added to our enjoyment. The Aboriginal Exhibits were amazing. I felt truly touched by the profound beauty of each painting. Appreciating, exhibiting and celebrating the unique art of Australia makes me proud. My friend who is a designer was enamoured by the colours of Jacaranda. I'm expecting that will be a new addition to her paint range very soon. Inspired by our visit.
  • An amazing place for all the art lovers. A place to get a hint of global art with all the audacious and vivid art works. Apart from the huge place dedicated to showcase the art, the Queensland Art Gallery building, in itself is a brilliant piece of Architecture. An iconic and must-visit place in Brisbane.
  • One of the most important places to visit in Brisbane. The Queensland Art gallery provides a multicultural perspective of Art. Depending on the selected theme, they provide that each display is perfectly resembling the artist statement- this increases your level of understanding, thus giving you the full perspective of what the artist is trying to say. All the selected artworks are almost always an eye-opening experience. So many meanings can be depicted through their selection of artworks, yet so powerful in its final representation. I would definitely recommend visiting for those not only interested in surrealism but for anyone that is interested in exploring the different perspectives of life through the souls of amazing artists.
  • Great collection, very well kept, friendly staff & security. All other galleries are in the vicinity super convenient. Although the floor planing & maps are slightly confusing, but it could very well just be myself thinking so
