Great location by the botanical gardens and harbour. Interesting art, nice cafe. Hermitage exhibition of Impressionist paintings was a bit pricey at A$28pp. but rare to see these paintings & worth seeing for art lovers.
I had a great time at the Gallery. Started off with lunch in the cafe which was enjoyable then headed in to see Masters of modern art from The Hermitage. It was a wonderful exhibition and after enjoying looking at all the fabulous paintings for a couple of hours l took a break and had a cuppa before plunging right back in to have another look. So many beautiful paintings under one roof. It wasn't crowded and that made the experience more enjoyable. The building itself is charming, right down to the creaky parquetry flooring in some of the rooms. A stroll through the Domain finished off a very pleasant visit.
The main public gallery in Sydney. Great Australian art gallery. Big expansion plans, it will be much better then. Tourists to Sydney should visit. A good cafe for a break in the Domain Park.
Love the Gallery, especially modern art section. Happy that they always get different collections over the world. The last one was the Hermitage collection. Saw it once in Saint Peterborough and was happy to see it again in NSW gallery. Only thing I would recommend is to have an application with an interactive map so people can navigate and get more facts about pieces of art on their phones.
Beautiful gallery, one of my favourite spaces in Sydney. Most of it is open to public for free and only special exhibitions require a ticket. Always nice staff(volunteers), Australian art, something special happening. The only thing I don't like here is the cafe, which could have been much better. Closes too early and always have to wait for staff.
