Art Gallery of NSW
Established in 1871, the Art Gallery of NSW has a fine collection of international, Australian and Indigenous art.
Visited by more than 1.2 million people each year, the Gallery is a place of experience and inspiration, through our collection, exhibitions, education, children’s programs and research. Admission to the Gallery is free, as are permanent galleries and most exhibitions and events.
Modern and contemporary works are displayed in expansive spaces, offering magnificent views of Sydney and the harbour, while the Grand Courts are home to a distinguished collection of colonial and 19th-century Australian works and European old masters. There are also dedicated galleries celebrating the arts of Asia and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art.
Alongside the collection are regularly changing temporary exhibitions – more than 30 each year – including flagship annual exhibitions such as the Archibald Prize and ARTEXPRESS.
The Gallery is one of the most popular art museums in Australia and is also a place to enjoy lectures, films, music and performances.
