There are a lot of interesting cultural art to admire together with audio visuals. It is advisable to spend a couple of hours in the museum that has 5 art galleries. For aboriginal art lovers and admirers this is a treasure trove.

Not bad for ducking in when you’re in the area but I wouldn’t recommend going out of your way. My partner visited on a Sunday afternoon and it was very quiet, I would say there were perhaps 10 patrons altogether while we were there yet...More

Between 30 September 2017 and 25 February 2018, the Canberra Museum and Gallery has a wonderful exhibition about the life and work of Eirene Mort. The exhibition is entitled 'Eirene Mort: A Livelihood'. I confess that I'd only heard of Eirene Mort a month or...More

I was only able to visit the ground floor of this museum, as the top floor was closed for renovations. The museum has a few interesting exhibits, but probably would not be of much interest to children. You are allowed to take non - flash...More

My first visit and I was fortunate to be there when an exhibition of the works by the multi-talented Eirene Mort were on display, most enjoyable. I also like the section about Canberra.
