This is an interesting repository of art and local culture and colour. After its recent renovation it has left some with a bitter taste. The cafe, although improved in its outlook into the Queens Gardens, has lost its mojo. It is awkward to navigate especially...More

The Suter Gallery had a few pieces on display by New Zealand artists and a nice gift shop but most of the space was devoted to modern art which was not very interesting. Unless you like modern art there is not much to see.

It was ok, I feel like I could've spent time elsewhere as it didn't have much. Lovely gift shop & Cafe though

An excellent arrangement of ceramics from all over the Nelson and Tasman region was displayed in the foyer, which is what I wanted to see. It was great to see so many artists being on view and for sale at Suter Gallery. The exhibitions were...More

I visited the Suter Gallery with my artist father-in-law, who was very excited to show us around. The location, next to the river was stunning, and it was a gorgeous building-- filled with light and a delicious cafe. However, the art itself was incredibly underwhelming....More

We enjoyed our visit to this gallery in the modern building filled with light and a popular cafe on the riverside. Great exhibits in both rooms and good explanations from greeter at the entrance. Free admission.

Very small gallery with 3-4 rooms with open exhibition. Shop has some lovely pieces. Menu of cafe wasn’t very interesting so ended up going elsewhere for lunch. Unless there is a special exhibition I probably wouldn’t recommend a visit.

We visited on an extremely wet day and the gallery offered a display of local artists work as part of a major exhibition and also some brilliant examples of key photographs taken over time on behalf of The National Geographic magazine. Although very different, the...More

Four of us visited the gallery. We approached the gallery through the botanic gardens. Everything is done beautifully and shows good taste and flair. It is all on such a small scale however. We actually were disappointed with the overall experience, and that is said...More
