This is an incredibly well run gallery, the best regional gallery I have been to. The exhibitions it runs are interesting and it fills gaps not filled by Sydney galleries and commercial galleries. The collection is very impressive as well. This gallery deserves an expansion,...More

I enjoyed my visit to the gallery. A new installation was being installed so we only could see the top floor art. I would have liked to see more

great with kids on a Sunday morning with free art activities. First rate collection and exhibitions including many works from the Newcastle collection. Our main reason for visiting Newcastle on this trip, to see touring exhibition 'Elioth Gruner'

This gallery has a brilliant collection of both local and Australian artist works - these are regularly rotated and incorporated into new shows. Plenty of activities for children too.

The Newcastle art gallery is a delightful regional gallery, with a fine collection in a lovely building over two floors. We were fortunate to see a terrific Brett Whitely exhibition. Entry is free, it is well worth a visit.

the art work in the gallery was amazing and unique, as i went for a school excursion they actually got the artists to come and tell us what the artwork was all about, was amazing to see the emotion in the arts.

The Newcastle Art Gallery has some wonderful exhibitions but The Archibald's has been the best in recent times. Would be wonderful if the Archie's came to Newcastle every year. The Gallery itself is a simplicistic design and well laid out. Paintings have been hung beautifully....More
