“Not a huge collection”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2012

The gallery has some very interesting travelling exhibitions such as the princely treasure exhibition but the galleries do not have a large collection on display at other times.

“Great use of space”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2012

The Gallery is situated in the attractive Perth Cultural Area, where several of the city's cultural institutions are located. While I'm not about to comment on the quality of its collection, the buildings in which they are displayed in, especially the old court house, is a great place to meander about. And state sponsored art galleries like these are always good to visit, especially when they always have featured exhibitions. There is a cafe and gift shop located on the ground floor, and the whole place makes for a worthwhile day out.

“Basic”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2012

It doesn't even come close to the galleries I visited in New York, and it is not somewhere you can spend a lot of time unless you are an art buff
