Gallery Guides

The view is changing

There's an exciting transformation underway at the Art Gallery of Western Australia. 

To accommodate AGWA's redevelopment works, visitor access is from the Beaufort Street entrance with Pulse Perspectives on display in the Centenary Galleries. From 29 May to 19 July Balancing Act and the Tom Malone Prize are on display in the main gallery building with access via Beaufort Street. All other gallery spaces remain closed until the redevelopment works are complete.

PLEASE NOTE We are taking school bookings for Pulse Perspectives, but all other school bookings and guided tours are postponed until further notice.

Until 19 July, we are offering free guided tours of the Tom Malone Prize.

You can find more information on the redevelopment works and planning your visit via the Plan Your Visit page.


The following tour options will be reinstated when redevelopment works are complete:

Wesfarmers Arts Daily 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.

Private Tours

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.

School Groups Guided Tours

To book your school in for a guided tour please visit the Learn page to make a booking.
