The AGO is one of our favourite places to visit. The exhibitions are always carefully curated and the Cafe on the second floor is a perfect place to sketch and enjoy delicious coffee!

It is FREE to visit the AGO on Wednesdays after 6pm. This Art Gallery had one of the best gift shops I had been in. The architecture of the building was wonderful and the art work is definitely worth a look.
