The building itself is very impressive but the exhibits are fairly minimal. I got the feeling that we were missing part of the gallery. In any case, if you are visiting the art gallery next door, pop in here as it is free.

Part of the South Bank experience is enjoying the modern art (and air conditioning) at GOMA. It is a tremendous place to spend an hour or so- it's not a huge museum. On my November 2016 visit, there were some fun pieces on view- a two story slide, sugary sparkly fun by Pip and Pop, as well as an Anish... More

I'm not a great art fan/connoisseur, but this place had some interesting displays and was very well laid out. Certainly worth having a wander through.

very disappointing - on our visit would not have been more than 30 exhibits - for such a good large venue extremely disappointing on the quality and quantity of exhibits. The highlight was 3-4 large panels of precision cut coloured glass in square frame - outstanding. For the rest if I had had to pay would have asked for my... More

GOMA as it is known is an excellent gallery housed in a building exhibiting sharp architecture, and part of the cultural heart of Brisbane. The Brisbane River setting is beautiful, and there are good views of the city. The associated restaurant is world class.

Whether you think modern art is amazing or a total con, do visit this gallery on the banks of the Brisbane river. The setting and layout of the gallery is really good and the art is ..... whatever you think it is. At the very basic it is exciting and different and exhibited in large spaces. An added bonus is...

We were unlucky as it was between shows when we arrived. The building is interesting, we ate at the cafe where the good was outstanding- they also have a more formal enclosed restaurant. The gallery was installing a Carsten holler slide which I would recommend

This is an excellent but very small gallery within which you can spend an hour or two. Make sure you go on the the free highlights tour.
