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 Boola Bardip.

Gallery closure 

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. All other gallery spaces remain closed until the redevelopment works are complete. The AGWA Shop is only available online during this period.

Getting here

AGWA is just a short walk from the Perth Train Station and is easily accessible by public transport and car.  Until further notice, visitor access is from the Beaufort Street entrance.
