  • Get immersed in a world of clever, yet fascinating, yet mind-boggling creativity. And even more so when the surrealism exhibition opens.... It's gonna be an deep dive into wonderland.
  • Archibald 100 years display. Well worth a visit. These paintings are great to see. Dont miss the Moving Portraits either. Its included in your ticket. Very, very clever.
