Lovely gallery and enjoyable insightful free tour led by volunteer guide Bente. The collection is a manageable size to view in a morning or afternoon at a leisurely pace.

Every time I travel to Adelaide, I stop in the Art Gallery as the exhibits are always changing. This visit I was lucky enough to attend the introduction of various music styles put on across for close by venues. Great event.

This is a truly fantastic gallery with both modern and classic exhibits - paintings, sculptures, shapeless objects, videos, jewelry etc. You can easily spend 2 hours here. Entrance is free of charge. Highly recommended!

The entry to this museum is free. The lady at the reception told us what the hottest items were in the museum and the best route to walk. We spend more than an hour here appreciating most of the art.

The museum had many interesting pieces but there does not seem to be any purposeful thought to organization. The same gallery may have traditional pieces next to taxidermy of two dead horses hanging from the ceiling. Did not see many Drysdale's, etc.

I took some clients to the Art Gallery and they were impressed with the paintings, A room was like a big spider webas well. Not as big as some other galleries I have visited but its worth a few hours of time to explore.
