I go to the gallery every few months to see what is on exhibition. This particular time I went with my boyfriend and we enjoyed most of the art and felt connected to the pieces on display. The reception desk people were lovely and very...More

Though it was a shop but it is actually a art gallery, got really snarky when I tried to move things around.

Regular changes of exhibitions make this venue a popular visit, even for the grandkids! Do school holiday events as well which are well worthwhile

You can lose yourself here... Best to go without little kids as they don't appreciate it and annoy others, it's easier to focus without them! Take your time and read everything, investigate the artists online while you're there, it'll open your eyes further to their...More

Small gallery but exceeded expectations. The interactive Art Loves You exhibition was enjoyed by adults and babies alike (such a rarity!). Entry by donation, exhibit doesn’t need long so plenty achievable even if short on time. Bathroom has change table for those with young kiddos.

We dropped into the Tauranga Art Gallery and were pleasantly surprised. It's a fairly small gallery and only had two exhibitions showing but both were great and enjoyable. Plus the gallery is free! Worth dropping in.

If you really like modern art this is the place for you but in ou 10 minute visit we found most of the exhibitions to be incomprehensible and nonsensical. They have good clean toilets.
