I like the fact that ACCA exists, and that it has a very specific mandate. From the outside, the architecture comprises a minimalist iron superstructure (which can appear imposing and rather unwelcome), but this does mean very large and airy exhibition spaces inside. The art is a mixed bag - I have been enthralled and appalled in equal measure, depending... More

Interesting Architecture - but you can see that from the tram. There really isn't much inside that would warrant getting off.

If I did miss a large chunk of the exhibition (doubt it, have circled the venue), the places that I'm supposed to go to are not well-marked at all. If I did not miss anything, the exhibition available here is like housing a tiny art gallery is a huge warehouse. High expectations = great disappointments. For what I have seen... More

The artwork are nice and impressive, I didn't expect the hall is that small though, I wish it will expand when having my next visit. There is Cafe and bookshop corner, worth for a walk.

Deceptively grand exterior but what a lovely find. The installations throughout were varied, colorful, and memorable. The front desk staff was great, too, stashing our bags and coats away and giving us a list of other nearby galleries on our way out.

Just returned from an exhibition of Ulla von Brandenburg: IT HAS A GOLDEN YELLOW SUN AND AN ELDERLY GREY MOON, did the 3pm Sunday tour with a very informative gallery attendant whose name is Anna. These tours are running every Sunday through June 2016. I spent an hour viewing the exhibit which had many videos running, so was worth seeing... More

I have been there a number of times with the hope of supporting local amenities and the Arts. I am disappointed every time by the lack of enthusiasm, courtesy or manners by those who work there. Rarely can they be bothered to look up from their desk or look past those they know in the line at the coffee cart,... More

Beware this place only has one gallery. The security is ok. In my opinion, it isn't worth the visit. Good for art lovers.
