Galleries, Museums and Collections

** The National Gallery of Australia is temporarily closed to the public, following advice from the ACT Government and the territory-wide lockdown. **

Delight in the art and world-class exhibitions on show at the National Gallery of Australia, on the shores of Canberra’s Lake Burley Griffin. Art lovers will enjoy meandering through the galleries and admiring the collection, which includes the famous ‘Blue Poles’ by Jackson Pollock and the Ned Kelly series by Sidney Nolan.

The new Australian and International art galleries provide plenty of things to see, following a large-scale rehang of almost every piece. The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art collection comprises over 7500 works and is the largest in the world.

Due to current health advice on social distancing, timed ticket sessions for visits apply. The Gallery’s International Art Gallery space and exhibitions, including Know My Name: Australian Women Artists 1900 to Now and Sarah Lucas are open for viewing. All other galleries remain closed. Visits will be timed and bookings are essential.

Please contact the business for the most up to date information regarding opening times and services.
