Specialised Guided Tours

See Your Collection differently

Preparations for AGWA’s new micro galleries, Sky and Garden are under way at AGWA.

From Friday 1 April, our Voluntary Gallery Guides will be conducting special tours of the Centenary Galleries. This will be the only way you will be able to visit these specific Galleries during the month of April.

As we begin to change our spaces, enter Centenary Galleries a different way and be one of the few to enjoy exclusive tours of our historical collection.

Art & Architecture Guided Tours
1pm, Fridays and 11am & 1pm, Sundays in April

Join us for an exclusive look at the art and architecture of the Centenary Galleries. Formerly the Perth Police Courts, the building was restored and opened in 1995 to house historical art, featuring displays of many of the State Art Collection’s 19th and 20th century paintings and decorative arts. Highlights include Hans Heysen’s Droving into the light 1914-1921, Down on his luck 1889 by Frederick McCubbin, Auguste Rodin’s Adam 1870-1874 and Charles Daubigny’s Snow scene, Valmondois 1875.
