  • Entry is free for all. Collections are very interesting, give a good sense of Western Australia. Was surprised there was not more Aboriginal art, but an interesting new exhibit is coming on Feb8, 2019...  more »
  • A McCubbin, a Sydney Nolan, a Lowry and a picture of Burnham Beeches, all a nice surprise. And some modern art too.  more »

  • Great exhibitions that take a way less colonial eye to art than I am used to seeing. Informative, okay variety of perspectives. Helps you get a pretty good sense of WA in a couple hours.
  • Interesting exhibits, love the fact that they have a local WA exhibition. Floor plan is well thought of which made it less confusing. I would love to come back again!
