  • I am a big museum fan and every city I go to, I try to visit their museums. The Art Gallery of WA is the best one Ive been to. First - it's free. Second - it's the perfect size to visit in a couple of hours. Third - their permanent collection is to die for. A lot of international artists + local ones. There was two temporary expositions: Nathan (Australian artist, amazing quality of art) and the evolution of sneakers. Enjoyed both a lot. Special thanks to the nice little woman at the entrance who explained everything about the exposition and gave me all the documentation.
  • For a city that isn't exactly famed for its culture, the Art Gallery of Western Australia is a haven of the arts. A good collection including a lot of visiting art that have also seen over on the east cost. Well worth checking out.
  • Great free tour. Learned lots 😊
  • Love te space. Interesting exibits
  • Nice big space's of art. Took the free tour though and it was the indigenous tour of Australian Aboriginal people. He had the slant of most Australian people still being oppressive which for the general majority is contrary to the truth
