  • We expected much more. The receptionist seemed quite lazy and uninterested. Didn't offer us any good guidance what was available. Your basically on your own. Don't forget to check out the very nice theatres on the right side of the building. Seemed the only attraction was the Heath Ledger exhibition, which was well done. We expected to see much more, like displays of all the well known Aussie movie stars and music groups, famous worldwide. Surprisingly there was none of that.

  • Heath Ledger exhibition was wonderful; I could barely believe it was free entry. The staff were very accommodating and friendly. Great facilities and parking. I'm definitely keen to make another trip down to Canberra to visit NSFA soon.

  • The Heath Ledger exhibition is well worth a visit. Two of his motorcycles, lots of pictures, including many he took on one of his many cameras, shorts and info about pictures he was in. A great talent we have lost too young. Coffee okay in café, but limited selection of food.

  • We enjoyed the wonderful Sunday afternoon seeing the Heath Ledger Exhibition. A celebration of a very multi talented artist in front and behind the camera. Thank you NFSA & Ledger/Bell family for sharing Heath's life and passions.

  • Went and saw the Heath Ledger exhibition and loved it. Inspiring! Staff were friendly and it was an easy 15 minute walk from the city.
