Norman Lindsay Gallery & Museum, Faulconbridge

Art Museum · Museum
Visit Norman Lindsay Gallery & Museum to learn about the life and work of a prolific Australian artist who left his mark as a sculptor, writer, cartoonist, and scale modeler. The gallery/museum is a stone cottage sitting on 17 hectares (42 acres) originally purchased by Norman Lindsay in 1913. Several smaller buildings are also incorporated, including the two that Lindsay used as his oil painting and etching studios. Lindsay transformed the property over the years, adding classical colonnades, fountains, walking paths, and sculptures. The oil studio offers a rare insight into the artist’s personal creative space, which has been preserved exactly as it was when he died in 1969. Check online to make sure you don’t miss any special events, festivals, and workshops frequently offered here.

  • I have been to this gallery twice and I highly recommend that you visit when it is all open and the tours are running. We visited and 2 of the studios are closed due to COVID. They still charge full.....  more »
  • Great for art lovers, particularly those who like Lindsay's style, and if you liked the children's book, "The Magic Pudding". The highlight for me, however, was walking through the garden and the...  more »
  • Enjoyable visit to the gallery and museum today. Unfortunately, due to COVID, only the gallery part was accessible - the two studios were closed. Really enjoyed the art work and the combination of.....  more »
  • This is a lovely historical house set in the beautiful natural landscape of the Australian bush. If you know and love Norman Lindsay (or even if you don't) , you will love this representations of his life through his art. The juxtaposition between his 'sirens' work and his Magic Pudding work is well curated. If can, get the guided tour. They have them at 11:30am and 1:30pm. We were walked through the gallery, the artist's studio and the etching gallery. The storytelling from the guide was definitely a highlight. The stories about Lindsay's life were great and really brought his artwork to life. The cafe is also worth stopping at too. Good coffee and nice staff.
  • Beautiful old house with gorgeous established trees, and pathways winding through the property, a great way to lose yourself in for a couple of hours. The cafe is well worth a visit, very good prices, nice filling proportions and well mannered, attentive staff. A lovely day out for those who yearn for yesteryear.
  • We loved The Magic Pudding exhibition, but the value of the pornographic art in this age of exposing exploitative men really must be questioned. The whole property needs a good clean and implementation of a proper garden management plan in keeping with a property of importance as national heritage.
  • What better setting to see works of this icon of Australia's art history than his own house. Paintings hang on walls as well as some etchings in the outhouse. The garden is well kept displaying mainly original statues. The tour was worth attending and is included in admission, which was a touch expensive.
  • Super inspiring work and a well presented gallery. Lovely free personal tour of Norman’s studio. Great collection of art to purchase. A highlight of our Blue Mountains trip!
