Our learning tours at the Art Gallery of New South Wales emphasise inquiry-based conversations and connections between works of art and the world around us. These interactive sessions are led by experienced Gallery educators who bring unique perspectives to the art on view. Adapted for all education levels, the tours bring students face to face with the Art Gallery’s collection to inspire critical thinking around art and ideas.
We offer two different themed tours to choose from. Both tours take place in the Art Gallery’s new North Building. A tour can accommodate up to 15 students (not including teachers and carers). For groups of 15–30 students, please book two tours. There is a maximum of 30 students per timeslot. We recommend booking at least four weeks in advance.
Art lives here
Learn about the Art Gallery’s exciting transformation and explore the art and architecture of our new building. In this session, we introduce students to the new gallery spaces and the art made specifically for those spaces. Guided by a Gallery educator, students unpack the major art commissions and learn about the process of creating a new museum.

Connect with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art and its diversity of practice across time, media and styles. Led by a Gallery educator, students interpret and discuss the art on view in our Yiribana Gallery, a space dedicated to Indigenous art that is now within the Art Gallery’s new building. For information and learning support, see our Yiribana online resource
