    Love how the art is uniquely organised based on themes not chronology, so you get to see how medieval and modern artists look at the same thing in different ways

    Great exhibition. Left a donation because it is free. Thanks to all the volunteers who make this possible

    Well worth a few hours of wandering around. Great temp exhibits and a solid collection of Aussie masters.

    Unconventional but yet satisfying mix of classical and contemporary art. A must visit when in Adelaide.

    The public gallery in both the House of Assembly and Legislative Council is open and free of charge to visitors when the Parliament is sitting. Check the website for dates

    The cafe is lovely, but appears to run out of food. Half of the menu is out of stock.

    A brilliant place to go to expand your mind and spark some creativity. Enjoy a coffee at the end to top off the experience before heading home to begin on your own masterpiece.
