Admission

Admission is ALWAYS free. YOUR Donations are welcome.

As of 29 April 2016, gallery admission is free for everyone. Agnes switched to an admission-is-free and donations-are-welcome policy in recognition that even small admission fees can be a barrier for access. As our collections and the ambition of our exhibitions grow, Agnes aims to expand forms of participation in the life of the gallery. Free admission is an important step in this process.
