wonderful collection of portraits. Some areas were closed due to a new exhibition about to open but still well worth the visit. Fabulous cafe.

We took a lot longer than we had planned to see the Gallery. I absolutely loved the visit.
There was a lot going on with exhibits that was not expected. The famous people in the gallery were from early colonial days. So some of the people in history we had learnt about we could put a face to the name. I found that very interesting. Don't miss it

So many unexpected faces on display from recent to those who helped build the nation, still living and since passed. I won't spoil it, but there will be plenty of people in the exhibits that everyone will recognise, but if not then there's a nice little description of each person's achievements to give you an idea of their significance in the gallery.

My first visit and I didn't allow long enough to admire each portrait fully and appreciate the skill of the artist, next time I will!

Well worth spending three or four hours here. The galleries are wonderful and the additional visitor facilities are excellent.
