New Gallery Experience

Our new world-class galleries will offer the most exciting gallery experience in Sydney.

The newly named Michael Crouch Galleries will bring to life the compelling stories and diverse voices within the Library’s rich heritage and contemporary collections.

The galleries will stretch across the entire first floor of the historic Mitchell building to highlight the glorious architectural features in this awe-inspiring space.

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 almost doubling our gallery spaces.

We're working with leading creatives to find new ways for visitors to experience, respond to and create with our collections through inspiring physical and digital experiences.

Local and international collections will also continue to be showcased through a changing kaleidoscope of exhibitions, supported by dynamic program of public events and talks.
