The Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA) is a single institution located across two adjacent river-side buildings in the Cultural Precinct at Brisbane's South Bank.

QAGOMA holds a collection of historical, modern and contemporary art, and stages a dynamic program of Australian and international exhibitions. We are home to the Children's Art Centre which collaborates on interactive artworks with leading artists from around the world, and the Australian Cinematheque, the only dedicated cinema facility in an Australian art museum.

QAGOMA operates its own retail outlets and cafes and restaurants, proceeds from which support the Gallery.

If you are interested in indigenous art and culture, you will be extremely interested in this gallery. The building itself is very impressive. The displays were intriguing. The gallery staff were very helpful. The gallery is free, making this an excellent bargain.

Went to this great facility with good interior. One wall of portraits consisting of approx. 20, then a mixture of other forms of art including some new guinea art. Large interior - very small no of exhibits - very disappointed. Wife is an artist and she was also very disappointed - wont come back

Marvellously colourful exhibition from Papua NG. Not having much knowledge about this country, I was delighted to share a bit of their culture including music and dance via technology. The art is certainly vivid and memorable.

This is worth a visit while visiting the small GOMA next door. When I visited there was also fairly modern and local exhibits on which i enjoyed.

Easy access from the heart of Brisbane. Gallery displays were exceptionally interesting and easy to meander from one floor to another.

Haven't been here for a few years, but have always enjoyed our visits. This time the exhibition of contemporary art from New Guinea- fascinating and very different. The Australian section is being renovated, but the wall of Australian art icons and the interactive display associated with it took hours of interesting time. A great gift shop and lovely cafe make... More

Was very excited to experience the art gallery. Had my daughter in her pram, asked for directions to the entrance and were directed to a huge staircase- thanks a lot. While inside the gallery, my daughter was in her pram holding an empty box which had chips in it, although it was empty and i had explained to the staff... More

What we like about this gallery is that it's not too big and not too small so it would still be a great activity to do with kids. They have a very nice sculpture garden and we really enjoyed the PNG exhibition. The theaterette played a beautiful story focusing on one part of PNG and their story before WWII and... More

A very good experience, with interesting art pieces. A good way to spend a few hours, and educational too.
