The Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA) is a single institution located across two adjacent river-side buildings in the Cultural Precinct at Brisbane's South Bank.

QAGOMA holds a collection of historical, modern and contemporary art, and stages a dynamic program of Australian and international exhibitions. We are home to the Children's Art Centre which collaborates on interactive artworks with leading artists from around the world, and the Australian Cinematheque, the only dedicated cinema facility in an Australian art museum.

QAGOMA operates its own retail outlets and cafes and restaurants, proceeds from which support the Gallery.

I'm not a huge fan of art galleries but I very much enjoyed my visit to the Queensland Art Gallery. We visited the Gallery of Modern Art first and then came here. My first impression of the gallery itself was what an amazing space it is. The pond with the cat walk to me screams "fun" and not like stuffy... More

The Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) have been great through the 2016-2017 Christmas holidays to take kids to see the 2 storey slide, kids activity areas and the Ron Mueck exhibition as well as the Heard by Nick Cave. It isa fantastic building which effectively integrates the modernist/brutalist 1980's Robin Gibson architecture with the astounding 2006... More

Not a huge art gallery but there are some beautiful pieces on display. I love the japanese artwork. Still some empty spaces that would be great to see utilized. I enjoyed taking my time to stroll through and quietly appreciate the art. Unlike goma and the museum, there were far less noisy kids here so much easier to appreciate the... More

Unfortunately some of the galleries were under reconstruction. Luckily, however, this meant that some of the older art works in the collection were displayed for the first time in a while. Enjoyed many different art works.

I come here every time I come to Brisbane and always love it. While a lot of the collections are permanent, seasonal exhibitions often come which are great! A free, must see location when in Brisbane, especially as it is right on the Riverbank!

Any visit to Brisbane is incomplete without checking out the understated but elegant Queensland Art Gallery. The permanent collections, including a knock-out Australian one, are usually well complemented by one or two other exhibitions. At present it has the Number One Neighbour exhibition of art from PNG on show - a gorgeous, vibrant and politically inspired exhibition incorporating paintings, fabric,... More

As soon as you enter this gallery you experience a spacious and peaceful environment where the exhibits are shown to really high standards. The layout and composition of the indigenous works, are a work of art in themselves. Go in through the front entrance on the river side, and look down into the lower gallery to see a remarkable sight,... More

The only thing that I really enjoyed were the beautiful pelicans in the fountain, so life like and drew me to them. Maybe because GOMA on one side and the Museum on the other were just so interactive, so involved and so much to see, this gallery paled into insignificance between them. I would suggest you go and visit this... More

Free entry to this amazing museum of Queensland, currently under some renovations, but still plenty to come see and experience. Bring the kids for a great day out and go check out the Modern Museum next door as well. Fun for all to enjoy !

Well worth a visit -great artwork and installations. Make sure you stretch out on the lounges and listen to the video (in the foyer underneath the amazing ceiling).
