Making your visit easier
The Gallery has various security and conservation protocols in place to safeguard the works on display.
Risks and Responsibility
The Gallery buildings and service provision conforms to all safety and building code standards offering a safe environment for group visits. Security guards are present in all public and Gallery spaces. In the event of an emergency they provide first aid assistance and coordinate building evacuation. In the interest of the security of the works on display and general comfort of all visitors, a general code of behaviour is expected.
Supervising adults must accompany the students throughout their visit to actively monitor student behaviour. It is the teacher's responsibility to oversee the general behaviour and to intervene when necessary.
