Plan Your Visit

AGWA is located in the heart of the Perth Cultural Centre – also home to the State Library of Western Australia, PICA, Blue Room Theatre, State Theatre Centre and WA Museum (Perth site closed, reopening 2020).

Things to know

The Gallery is free to visit but we ask for a donation. Some special exhibitions are ticketed. To protect artworks, the Gallery is climate controlled and can be a little cool – bring a cardigan.

We welcome non-flash photography for personal use and love to see photos of your visit. #ArtGalleryWA #seethingsdifferently #AGWA
