Pleasant building housing wide range of paintings and sculpture. Liked all of the great Australian artists/art on display. References to development of art in Australia and changing taste also interesting. Cafe efficient and tasty offerings in airy courtyard. Pleasant couple of hours.

My wife suggested we come in to see Cate Blanchett in this movie RED it was sensational and worth every minute of the drive here. I believe that the installation is on until the end of April - check with the art gallery - its really worth seeing and the bonus its free, we found the film runs every 15... More

We had checked out of our hotel & planned to spend the day here particularly as the weather was hot & it was our last day in Adelaide! We did an 11am tour of 'Versus Rodin' ( very good) & then had lunch as part of a Rodin package for $60 which was very good value & consisting of delicious... More

I had a quick stop in Adelaide and visited the gallery. I tacked on to a guided tour which highlighted the gallery but also allowed some time for you to explore. What a great place to spend a couple of hours.

This gallery is always fun. People are really engaged - both staff and visitors. I imagine they don't have much funding, and they are so imaginative. Great coffee shop, always has interesting teas and cakes. Gallery shop is great too, with a carefully chosen selection. The building is also charming.

Always a highlight whenever we visit Adelaide. One of the country's best state galleries. Never ever disappointed. The restaurant is good too as is the shop.

This gallery has an eclectic collection including a superb selection of colonial works. The decor and natural light all enhance the works and make for a very pleasant viewing experience. We were disappointed in the Rodin exhibition, which featured only very few of Rodin’s works and a more numerous collection of very strange and outlandish “sculptures” which were apparently intended...

I can't believe this is FREE. The artwork is superb and sculptures & displays interesting. Some of the layout appears a bit muddled though...

The Art Gallery is a great place to spend a few hours wandering around. The time needed depends on what you want to get out of it. It can be seen in under an hour if you just want to kill some time, or a couple hours if you really want to take it all in. Admission for the general... More
