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.

Wanna enjoy your day off, it's a place to be! Spend some quality time next to the Brisbane river and learn something new. Free of charge! You can find fascinating art exhibitions all years round here. Highly recommended.

One of the best if not the best Modern Art museums in Australia. Definitely puts the one in Sydney to shame. Way better than the other art museum in the zone. The slides are really cool.

I enjoyed visiting this gallery. I liked the architecture of the building with a water feature as you enter and wide open spaces so you can view the art in comfort. I enjoyed the aboriginal art very much, and my grandchildren loved the children's art room.The special exhibition of modern art was great fun as well!

The current exhibition, spun sugar, is amazing. My teenage daughter who normally doesn't like culture activities absolutely loved it. So much to see on all levels. All exhibits have a volunteer attendant (or 2) who were very informative with info. Couldn't pick a favourite, they were all so different, but loved the 3 storey furry wall, the horses (costumes), the... More

The Gallery is a fantastic way to escape the heat for free. The gallery has a very nice selection of art work stretching over various period of times and style. You can easily kill a couple of hours here with all the family although young children may not find it too interesting. It has toilet and bag storage too all... More
