A well presented gallery with a reasonable range of Australian Art - eg McCubbin, Roberts, Lindsay etc and a collection of European art works/

Very nice, good place to see some of the WA history at place.
Well located right in the cultural hub of the city centre

Nice glass works, also a cool Sidney Nolan 7 panel painting "Desert Storm".

Also got a good shop for buying book and artsy stuff.

Not very big with an eclectic collection so can be quite surprising - something for everyone.

Free and right next to the Perth train station so well worth a look.

Its wonderful to see an exhibition of this caliber being presented by high school students. I was moved to tears by more than one of the works and was impressed by the interpretation of the world around these very talented young artists!
