One of Australia's best. Loved the gallery installations, the Picasso exhibition and the drawing room behind the exhibition. Amazing and lived the spaces as always!! Well worth a visit.

There is always something amazing to see and experience at the Art Gallery of South Australia... The quality and variety of works on show is truly world class. Exhibitions are constantly changing and are always interesting. Staff and volunteers are are rad too. Do yourself a favour and check out their collection of indigenous, classical and contemporary art - you won't be disappointed.
