  • It is eighteen months since we last visited the Art Gallery, and I have been looking forward to a return visit. I am not disappointed! And again, it is not so much the works of art that appeal...  more »

  • One of Australia's best. Loved the gallery installations, the Picasso exhibition and the drawing room behind the exhibition. Amazing and lived the spaces as always!! Well worth a visit. Do not miss if you are in Adelaide. A cultural thumbs up in the whole Australian landscape. Do not dismiss one of Australia's most innovative states. If you don't believe me, take a look at SA history. You will be surprised.
  • There is always something amazing to see and experience at the Art Gallery of South Australia... The quality and variety of works on show is truly world class. Exhibitions are constantly changing and are always interesting. Staff and volunteers are are rad too. Do yourself a favour and check out their collection of indigenous, classical and contemporary art - you won't be disappointed.
