  • I don't know how it's possible but this has got to be one of the best gallery's in the world. I read a review on here previously about someone coming in here to get shade and they stated they were gonna smacked by how good it is. I too have to back this up, despite Brisbane being a small little city on the other side of the world, London and Paris should take note of how to do a gallery. Everything about this place is perfect, I have come here several times since my first visit and would highly recommend this to anyone regardless of if you like art or not. Hands down the best gallery I have ever been to.
  • The GOMA is a really neat museum. If you love modern art, this is the place to go. Part of the APT9 stretches from the Queensland Art Gallery to here and the connection is great! They have everything from more conventional modern art to some really out there stuff, so I think there is something for everyone! I will say, this museum isn’t as children friendly, but can be the nature of modern art. It’s free to go through and I think worth it.
