What is there to do?

The Art Gallery of Western Australia is located in the middle of the Perth Cultural Centre and showcases an extensive array of art including Western Australian, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art and worldwide international art.

Throughout the year, the Gallery offers a diverse range of free, fun and educational activities specifically designed for children. There’s always plenty for kids to do, from indoor trails where you can wander around the Gallery at your own pace, or you can join in with one of the school holiday activities.

Their new State Art Collection display features a drawing table for both children and adults. Participants can draw a colourful still life using the objects in the exhibition as inspiration. You can then take your work home or display it within the space for everyone to admire.

Explore the 'Your Collection' displays with their interactive discovery sheets that encourage children to finely observe the many different works within the Collection. These are available online to download or pick up a copy from the Gallery's Reception desk on your next visit.

How much does it cost?

Adults: They do ask all visitors to make a small voluntary donation as you enter.


Need a little extra help?

A walking frame, manual wheelchairs plus an electric buggy are available for visitors use. These are provided free of charge and bookings are advisable to ensure availability. Bookings can be made by calling the Gallery Reception.


When can we go?

Any top tips?

With younger or less patient kids, time your visit to match their kids' programs to get the most of the trip.
