Established in 1871, the Art Gallery of NSW is proud to present fine international and Australian art in one of the most beautiful art museums in the world.
Modern and contemporary works are displayed in expansive, light-filled spaces, offering stunning views of Sydney and the harbour, while the splendid Grand Courts are home to a distinguished collection of colonial and 19th-century Australian works and European old masters. There are also dedicated galleries celebrating the arts of Asia and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art.
Alongside the permanent collection are regularly changing temporary exhibitions – more than 30 each year – including flagship annual exhibitions such as the Archibald Prize and Artexpress.
One of the most popular art museums in Australia, visited by over 1 million people annually.
