Art Gallery of South Australia

The Art Gallery of South Australia holds one of Australia’s finest art collections, housed in one of Adelaide’s most beautiful historic buildings. It is centrally located on leafy North Terrace between the South Australian Museum and the University of Adelaide, and has been an important cultural focus since its establishment in 1881, only forty-five years after the first European settlers arrived. The Elder Wing, the original building, was designed in 1897 and opened in early 1900. In 1936 the two level Melrose Wing was added, another wing at the back of the Gallery opened in 1962, and the West Wing extensions which doubled the size of the Gallery, opened in March 1996. The new West Wing, as well as including collection display space and a very large underground temporary exhibitions gallery, houses the Bookshop, Café, function hire rooms and lecture theatre
