Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Small gallery showcasing Indigenous artwork. Nice gift shop and cafe. Gallery is quite small but nicely set out. At end of Grenfell Street.

A small art gallery only featuring a few artists but that makes it even more special in a lot of ways.
You are handed informative sheets of paper to read through the different pieces and help you interpret each one.
A seperate exhibition room holds a single artist’s work and their story and then the gift shop that will help support these artists and their communities.
I had a great time and I would highly recommend a short visit if you’re strolling around in Adelaide.

Amazing gallery with a great little cafe.

The cafe has a great vibe and amazing coffee. The food is well priced and good quality.

There is always something new to see at the gallery and the shop has a large variety of gifts and art to purchase.

Overall it's a good experience for new and returning visitors.

What a great place to have a mini immersion into some Aboriginal culture. It's a small center and a visit can be as short or as long as you like.

The exhibits are always changing - three different ones were on display when we visited.

If you combine this great spot with visits to the Immigration Museum and the South Australia Museum's Aboriginal Gallery you will come away with new learning and insight into the richness, complexities and joys of Australia today with an honest approaching of the troubled history.

Having eventually reached the gallery on foot we found it was busy with the Fringe Festival, so, not much to see. Totally agree with Ron's comments. Their shop had some interesting items though.
To add insult to injury we could not even find a pub open so hiked it all the way back to Peppers for "rehydration", it was 40C after all & the locals were complaining. Wimps, come up to QLD & get 40C+ with 90% humidity, that is the killer!

Wasn't clear what the purpose is; saw activities as part of the Fringe Festival but the museum and gallery didn't show clearly what it was about or the quality of the art.

Not a big collection but quality rather than quantity and well set out in the old power room, or whatever it was. Welcoming staff and quite a good selection in the shop. Worth a visit. No charge.

Exhibition was ok but Tandanya seams to not have any good leadership or energy about the place. The venue is not alive, is sad to see such a organisations miss use their opportunities.

This museum and gallery was not easy for us to find as it is not in the bustling Adelaide center. But we were so glad we did find it. Besides the original paintings on display, the gift shop has some of the best aboriginal designed gifts.

Tucked away at far end of city centre from the train station. Visited this as only in the city for one day. A new exhibition of local aboriginal art had just started. Fascinating.

Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Even go t a few original and different gifts to take back home.
