South Australia Art Gallery, Adelaide

South Australia Art Gallery, Adelaide (must see)

The Art Gallery of South Australia is the premier visual arts museum in the Australian state of South Australia. It has a collection of over 35,000 works of art, making it, after the National Gallery of Victoria, the largest state art collection in Australia.

Part of Adelaide's North Terrace cultural precinct, the gallery has more than 510,000 visitors annually. The gallery was established in 1881 and opened in two rooms of the public library by Prince Albert Victor and Prince George, later George V of Great Britain. Its present building dates from 1900 and was extended in 1936 and 1962. Subsequent renovations and a significant extension of the building which opened in 1996 added contemporary display space without compromising the interior of the original Victorian building.

Opening hours: Monday - Sunday: 10 am - 5 pm
