City Gallery Wellington Reviews
We went to the City Gallery on a rainy day in Welly. Entry is free and the exhibition was nice. Staff is extremely friendly. Would definitely recommend. more »
It is a lovely space with friendly staff. The exhibitions are all temporary, so you do not know what you are going to get. The stuff that I saw did not really appeal to me, but it may be different... more »
Contemporary gallery with several exhibitions on simultaneously. Installations, moving image and interactive exhibitions. A good place to get your art fix. Small cafe within gallery as well. Free entry. A must for art lovers.
Nice exhibitions. Lovely building. Free entry. Really nice little cafe restaurant with an outside area.(pricey though but it is just my point of view) Also there is a cute gift shop.
