The Art Gallery of Western Australia in Perth is one of the most popular tourist destinations of its kind in the world. Planning to visit it is likely to be an eye opener for you and your friends or family members. The gallery was started in 1895, making it one of the oldest in the world. It occupies a space at the Perth Cultural Centre, and is celebrated for having one of the finest art collections in the region. If you are an art fan or simply want to indulge in it, planning a visit to this specific gallery is likely to be quite the experience for you.
The main reason why you should plan a visit to this facility is the fact that it has a lot to offer in terms of variety. There are different displays that are usually planned during the year, so visiting it twice might not provide the same experience. The displays are usually selected based on the theme for that time of year. If you make art, you can also use this opportunity to have it displayed in the gallery. During some times of the year, the gallery accepts art submissions from other artists, and you can make an application for this. You stand a chance of winning one of many awards that are usually given for outstanding pieces of art.
The gallery also offers an excellent opportunity for education. There are art workshops that are usually organized throughout the year, and these are usually designed for specific age groups. If you are travelling with kids who are fans of art, for instance, you can find out what workshops will be there during your visit, and then make it a point to have them attend some of these. The fact that they are run by professionals means that they are likely to gain a lot from them.
The gallery can also be rented for hosting activities such as cocktail and dinner parties as well.
This gallery is usually open between 10am and 5pm from Wednesday to Monday. It is closed on all Tuesdays and on holidays such as Christmas, Good Friday and Anzac Day. You can visit it most of the other days if you are interested in it. The gallery does not charge any entry fees. However, if you are so inclined, you can make a donation to it.
The gallery is located very close to the Perth CBD, and also happens to be close to facilities including the train station. It’s easy to use public means to get to the gallery, but renting a coach or a minibus from us is likely to be more convenient especially if you are travelling in a group. Having to travel with a group using public transport in a city that you may not be fully familiar with can sometimes be chaotic, and is best avoided. We do our best to keep the cost of our rentals low, so you won’t need to break the bank for the sake of convenience.
