The 500,000th visitor has visited the Auckland Art Gallery since it was revamped in September last year.

Secondary school teacher Lulu French visited the gallery on Saturday with her partner Jeremiah and son Rene.

The Otara resident said they were impressed and feel art is for everybody to enjoy.

She said she never thought she'd stand in front of a Monet.

Ms French and her family were given free entry into the Degas to Dal exhibition, plus a free catalogue, T-shirt, notebooks and art gallery book Art Toi.
