COVID-19 safety

The safety of our guests, visitors and staff is our highest priority. We will take all the necessary precautions to ensure our events are as safe and enjoyable as possible. Please note that from 31 January 2022 the John Curtin Gallery requires all patrons to show proof of COVID-19 double vaccination under the WA Government’s health directives.

Acceptable forms of proof can be found on the WA government website here.

Guests will also be asked to adhere to the WA Government’s other health directives, including mask wearing (as required) and checking in via the ServiceWA/SafeWA apps or filling in a mandatory contact register.

Please note that requirements for attendance to events may change without notice in line with government and/or Curtin University health measures.


The Gallery is free to visit, donations are welcome. To protect artworks, the Gallery is climate controlled and can be a little cool.

We have an exciting Public Program and calendar of events including exhibitions, tours, floor talks, school holiday programs and facilitated workshops at the John Curtin Gallery. There may be a fee for some special events with discounts available for pensioners, students and healthcare card holders.
