New Galleries

We’re transforming heritage areas never-before open to the public into beautiful galleries and informal spaces for the benefit and enjoyment of the hundreds of thousands of people who visit us every year.

The new Michael Crouch Family Galleries will offer a unique experience for our visitors, stretching across the first floor of the historic Mitchell building.

Our current galleries in the western wing of the Mitchell will be renewed to complement the new galleries that are being created in the eastern wing, effectively doubling our gallery spaces.

We’re continuing to find new and interesting ways for visitors to access and enjoy the Library’s collection through a program of permanent and changing exhibitions.

Local and international collections will continue to be shown as part of our program.
