We had a memorable and enjoyable visit to this relatively small gallery. We particularly enjoyed the wide range of art and artifacts on display, from early Australian Colonial ,aboriginal, Asian , Islamic and European art to furniture and silverware pieces. Some of the displays on the top floor are modern exhibits and challenging to interpret. Overall a good exhibition and... More

I've always liked this gallery - good exhibits, great shop and an always packed cafe but when I visited last week the lifts were non operational so we had to carry our stroller and walk the toddler down the stairs. This made our visit awkward as they appeared to have no back up plan or lift. I would have given... More

Great range of Australian impressionists. If you want to see the Eros in Piccadilly Circus up close there is a twin there (two were made, one's in London of course but the other surprisingly is here). Very good quality dining in the Cafe.

The Art Gallery of South Australia has numerous collections of great distinction, particularly Australian. However, if you happen to be interested in Rodin, you would NOT find a better gallery to visit without having to travel overseas. It has an outstanding Rodin collection, because it is the largest such collection in the Southern Hemisphere. Pure delight. The other largest Rodin... More

There are lots of exhibitions at the gallery most of which are free. The staff are friendly and informative, and we did enjoy the Lee Mingwei exhibition very much. Very well curated.

We recommend it to all our visitors and they give it good reviews. Easy access from North Terrace, friendly, well informed staff and a good cross section of artwork in the regular display with affordable special events.
