I only had about 1.5 hours so I made a quick tour. I enjoyed the indigenous exhibits the most. If you have more time there are free tours that discuss the history and some exhibits in depth.

There is always an interesting exhibit on at the AGO, and the permanent collection is vast. The building itself is beautiful, too. I have been a member for years, and the fee is money well spent.

The AGO gives the visitor a good idea of the local and contemporary art. The building itself and the café on the second floor are worth a visit.

The expositions at the AGO are breath taking. It is very diversified and it covers many many different type of arts and periods. The building of the museum is an attraction itself with its crazy stairs and the wood everywhere. Highly recommend!

Interesting exhibits, great curation, good food - what's not to love? Only problem is very long lineups and waiting times when bigger exhibits are on show.

It depends on what interests you and if you take one of the guided tours. I would say the minimum would be 2 hours, yet it would be very easy to spend 3+ hours there.
