Who are the giant figures that greet visitors in the Welcome Plaza? How was a former oil tank turned into a gallery space?

Book our State of the art experience and, as part of a small tour group, you’ll get to know the secrets of Sydney’s most exciting new architectural landmark – the Art Gallery’s SAANA-designed North Building – and encounter one-of-a-kind artworks created especially for our expanded campus.
