The museum is great. The contemporary exhibit has a light and fog exhibit in the theater that is delightful to interact with. When you walk into the light it's like you're in Star Trek. We also enjoyed the extensive painting collection. We used subways during...More

As ever, this gallery never disappoints. The John Olsen exhibition was varied and fulsome, and the guide was well informed and interesting. It's good to visit gallery whenever in Sydney.

A great exhibition of art: traditional, contemporary, moving exhibits, so if you come back on a second or third visit, there will be new things to see. Well laid out.

Went to the Art museum for the first time a few months ago. I LOVE the old part! The beautiful floor and the amazing ceilings, nearly spent more time gazing at those than I did the paintings! Whoops!

Staying at Hilton Sydney is a short walk across Hyde Park to the Art Gallery. Great exhibitions. Good café food but excellent lunch at Chiswick Restaurant. Had Matt Moran's slow cooked lamb - fabulous!

I was here last Wednesday evening. Absolutely loved it. Saw the current Olsen exhibition, then wandered the gallery. Had a glass of bubbly in the foyer area whilst doing a free craft activity. This is a lovely and different evening out. Will be back here...More

Your typical English style art gallery with a touch of Aboriginal art. Worth the visit and gave an overview of Australian art!

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
