A great exhibition of prominent Australians, present and past. Thoughtfully presented with each exhibit carrying a detailed history of the subject.
“Nice to see”
It was nice to see the portrait gallery but it wasn’t my favourite. Some lovely pieces of work in there and well worth a visit if you’re in Canberra
“History in portraits”
I bet you learn something new every time you visit the Gallery if you take the time to read the notes
