Art Gallery of Western Australia

Galleries, Museums and Collections

Welcome to the Art Gallery of Western Australia. Through the Collection, their associated programs, and stimulating exhibitions they offer Gallery visitors unique and exciting experiences of historic and contemporary Australian artists, and bring the art of the world to Western Australia.

The Gallery places particular emphasis on the arts of Australia, and due to their geographic position, the Indian Ocean Rim. Australia’s proximity and access to many of the most exciting cultures of the world adds immeasurably to programs, exhibitions, collections and events at the State Art Gallery.

The Art Gallery of Western Australia, founded in 1895, occupies a precinct of three heritage buildings on the south-eastern corner of the Perth Cultural Centre. The Gallery houses the State Art Collection, which includes one of the world’s finest collections of Indigenous art, the pre-eminent collection of Western Australian art and design, as well as Australian and International art and design.

Admission to the Gallery is free although donations are encouraged. An entry charge may apply to special exhibitions.
