  • Has a nice collection of Sydney Nolan art, which is better displayed here then at the one at National Gallery. Using the term Museum is overselling it. It has a very small permanent art collection, so how good your experience is will depend on the quality of the visiting exhibition.
  • Very interesting with some early Canberra information on display. Other than that it is relatively doring as it is more gallery than museum. Entry is free and worth spending some time looking thru it provided you don't get the numerous inconsiderate people who talk very loudly on the phone whislt walk through the displays. Unfortunately it echoes around and becomes even louder. There should be signs posted and staff warnings about not using mobile phones.
  • A wonderful local gallery and museum with excellent exhibitions and lovely staff.
  • Get a real break from work at lunch , cool calm and collections. Bikes have gone interesting bird sculptures new in
  • It is a nice building. A good spot to hang out and it has some nice art pieces. All of that is free of charge.

Where to stay in Canberra

To stay comfortably near most main attractions in Canberra, choose a hotel in the city's central district. If you're a bit more budget-minded, look for a guesthouse in a neighborhood farther away from the city center. Residential areas offer more parking and quieter rooms at a fraction of the price charged by big-name centrally located hotels. Rental apartments spread across Canberra serve as another cozy option and offer lodgings ranging from simply furnished to luxurious five-star properties.
