Top Art Galleries in Brisbane - Inspirational Attractions

Brisbane is home to a number of top galleries and museum. Most are free of charge to enter and make ideal family attractions. Enjoy the fascinating exhibits as you wander the streets of sunny Brisbane.


The Queensland Art Gallery

Australian artworks from the time of its European occupation to the swinging '70s are chronicled at the museum. There are also a number of international and Asian artistic objects displayed there. A beautiful range of artefacts occupy the museum; expect to browse through creative items such as pottery, furniture, photography, textiles and paper creations. The museum is quite gargantuan in size with many display rooms; hence it is wise to hook up with one of the volunteer guides available between 11 am and 2 pm. Located on South Bank entrance to the museum is free. It is open from 10 am to 5 pm Monday to Friday and 9 am to 5 pm on Saturday and Sunday.


Gallery of Modern Art

Before setting off on a cultural trail get settled in a comfortable Milton hotel in Brisbane; consider one that is centrally placed and preferably offers serviced apartments in Brisbane. These allow you to move about to your own schedule with all the comforts and conveniences of home. Centrally placed within the Brisbane CBD is The Milton Brisbane, for instance. The Gallery of Modern Art or GoMA has many interesting seasonal exhibits such as visually inspiring exhibits, political satire and propaganda. The latest rage at the gallery is the interactive activity at the galleries 'Children's Centre'. There the challenge is on to create an extraordinary bird in the 'Fly Away Home' nest like exhibit corner. This is on until September 2016. This gallery is located at Stanley Place on South Bank and once again entrance is free. Open hours are from 10 am to 5 pm Monday to Friday and 9 am to 5 pm Saturday.
