The Edith Head Exhibition could only be described as outstanding. The history and the condition of all the garments was put together in such an enjoyable and professional way. The Gallery is to be congratulated on procuring these costumes and exhibitioning them to the public.

Visited specifically to see the Edith Head Exhibition. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We have made special trips in the past just to see other exhibitions held at this gallery, a 4 hour drive from home, and have never been disappointed.

The Edith Head exhibit was fantastic - almost unexpectedly so for a regional gallery. I will be keeping my eye out for future exhibits of a similar vein. I didn't make use of the cafe although it looked fine - it is inside the gallery...More

We did not expect such a wonderful gallery in regional Victoria. The art on display was wonderful and well set out. Bendigo is very lucky to have this attraction. Would recommend to all locals and visitors.
