Art Gallery of NSW

The Art Gallery of NSW presents a fine collection of International and Australian art in one of the most beautiful museums in the world. Established in 1874, the Art Gallery delivers exceptional collections of works from artists around the world as well as an extensive permanent collection. Located near St James station and the Botanic Gardens, the Art Gallery is one of our top picks for our guests exploring Sydney.

Modern and contemporary works are displayed in expansive, light-filled spaces, offering stunning views of Sydney and the harbour, while our 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 our permanent collection are regularly changing temporary exhibitions – more than 30 each year – including flagship annual exhibitions such as the Archibald Prize and ARTEXPRESS.
