Depending on the featured artist this can be more or less interesting, and it obviously depends on your taste in art. The permanent collection is not that impressive.

Perhaps the best thing about AGA is the building itself, it is very progressive and modern, a true gem compared to the usual mutilated architectural urbanism the city is so proud of. Unfortunately the gallery lacks essence, substance and direction. Perhaps the worse thing about...More

I don't know what it says about the AGA that the highlight of the trip for my wife and I was the architecture of the building itself. I'll put it down to both of us being engineers who also enjoy art. Being massive fans of...More

A great way to spend a rainy day. The exhibits are current and interesting. I highly recommend signing up for a tour to delve even further into the meaning behind the artworks! The building itself is a marvel to behold.

So I was here when they had Italian Baroque collection and it did win the day over the other galleries... Nice to come out to enjoy, nice roof patio to enjoy on good day with cup of what you like..

very nice lay out of building outside, but not as enticing inside. Hope they'll add more things to see inside.

Purchased an annual pass but wasn't the experience I'd hoped for. The exhibits were ok, their events over priced, the restaurant attached although it gets fav reviews is overpriced & loud.
