Why locals recommend it
The permanent collection is excellent, but they also have top visiting exhibitions. I often visit on weekends and take my kids—they have a fantastic family program. Alongside every exhibition here is a learning space for younger visitors where they can be tactile and engage without touching the art. They have a spectacular rooftop cafe with some of the best views of the Opera House and Harbour Bridge in the city. You can sit inside or outside and enjoy coffee and cake or a glass of wine and lunch. It’s nice to go on Wednesdays when it’s open late—along with the rest of the gallery.
