ロイヤル・ボタニック・ガーデンの南側にあり、旧館のミッチェル・ウィングと新館のマッコーリー・ストリート・ウィングの2つの建物から成り立っていて 旧館のミッチェル・ビルディングは荘厳で素晴らしいです。 more »Located on the South side of the Royal Botanic Garden, composed of 2 Macquarie Street wing of the new building with the Mitchell wing of the old buildings in solemn building of the Mitchell building, is great.
What a delightful surprise. It's far more than just a library, but also a gallery, museum and loads and loads of history. Free guided tours are most informative. A nice cafe on the main floor , hidden away by the bookstore / gift shop, offers nice selection of warm meals, salads and snacks in a pleasant setting. The gallery is better than some fine arts Museums in world famous cities, and it has interactive displays of most art that will surely impress everyone. You can easily spend the entire day in this building. And it's all free!
Beautiful library and building, featuring a cafe, a small gift shop, and a galley and museum. Definitely not of the cozy variety, much more sleek and clean, but a good place to take a rest and read a book. The art collections are totally incredible. Worth a trip just for the museum-quality gallery! Loved the video exhibit featuring aboriginal elders.
