From its magnificent site on Sydney Harbour, on Gadigal land, the Art Gallery of New South Wales is one of Australia’s flagship art museums and the state’s leading visual arts institution.

In 2021 the Art Gallery celebrated their 150th anniversary, and in 2022 they completed their significant expansion through the Sydney Modern Project.

This transformation creates a new art museum campus across two buildings connected by a public art garden in one of the world’s most beautiful cultural precincts.

The expanded Art Gallery is one of the finest tourism destinations in Australia and an absolute must-see for an art and cultural experience in Sydney.

Just a 15 minute walk from the city centre, admission to the Art Gallery is free. Dine at Crafted by Matt Moran or MOD. Dining by Clayton Wells.

Enjoy refreshments from the Gallery Café, or Kiosk featuring a takeaway menu with each item, curated by Indigenous Elder Aunty Beryl Van-Oploo, featuring native Australian ingredients.

You can choose from a range of fascinating tours and immersive experiences.

Whether you’re looking for a friendly introduction to our unique art museum campus and renowned collection of Australian and international art or a special one-of-a-kind experience that you’ll never forget, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

Visit on a Wednesday evening until 10pm for Art After Hours and see a slice of Sydney culture with free celebrity talks, music, performances, films and special events.
