There’s nothing like a personal interaction to spark the imagination.
Whether you’re a seasoned artistic traveller or apprentice explorer, our Gallery Guides offer that extra insight into the artwork, the era and the artist.
Wesfarmers Arts Guided Tours
Each day, we run free Wesfarmers Arts guided tours from short Art Snacks (lunchtime tours) to longer thematic explorations of special exhibitions and the AGWA Collection. You can choose to attend any and as many as you like.
We are revitalising the Gallery spaces. Over the coming months some of our gallery spaces will be closed. The format and scope of content for some of AGWA’s guided tours will therefore be adapted to suit these changes. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your understanding during this time. Please ask our team at the front desk for more information.
The Voluntary Gallery Guides will be taking a break over the festive season. The last guided tours for 2020 take place on Sunday 20 December 2020. The guides return to the Gallery for their first tours on Monday 11 January 2021.
You can book a free guided tour for a small group tailored to their interests and level of art knowledge. A minimum of four weeks’ notice is required for these bookings.
