Visitor guidelines

The best possible AGA experience for all

Please remember these guidelines when you visit the gallery spaces

Admire, but don’t touch the artwork

Artworks are fragile, so please do not touch them. Please keep some space between yourself and all works of art.

Check in large items

Backpacks, umbrellas, musical instruments and other large items are not permitted in exhibition spaces. Coin operated lockers are available in the coat check room on the main level.

Silence cell phones

Please set phones to silent or vibrate mode while in the exhibition spaces. Please be respectful of other visitors and step outside of the exhibition space when speaking on your cell phone.

Keep food and drink outside the exhibition spaces

To protect the artwork, please do not bring food and/or drink into exhibition spaces.

Take flash-free photos

You are welcome to take photographs in exhibition spaces for personal use or for social sharing, except where stated otherwise. Selfie sticks, tripods and flashes are not permitted in exhibition spaces.

Professional/formal photography sessions are permitted only in public spaces of the Gallery and only to those with an event booked at the AGA.
