Situated in the heart of Perth’s Cultural Centre, the Art Gallery of WA houses the State Art Collection with works by renowned local and international artists from the 1800s to today. Discover the story of Western Australian art in the WA Journey gallery, and immerse yourself in the Six Seasons space displaying Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art.

The Gallery was founded in 1895 and occupies a precinct of three heritage buildings on the south-eastern corner of the Perth Cultural Centre including the former Perth Police Courts. The main Gallery opened in 1979 and is a unique modernist building inspired by the pavilions and courtyards of the Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City. In 2019, the Gallery celebrates its 40th anniversary of the main building. In 2020 the Gallery celebrates 125 years.
