  • 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. Do not miss if you are in Adelaide. A cultural thumbs up in the whole Australian landscape. Do not dismiss one of Australia's most innovative states. If you don't believe me, take a look at SA history. You will be surprised.
