The oldest public art museum in Australia has a funny bit of contention against its name: people keep confusing it with the National Gallery of Australia. Despite demands that the name be changed somehow, things have remained as they were, primarily because the Gallery was established some 40 years before Australia itself. The collections of Australian art, (indigenous, colonial, modern, impressionist and contemporary) are quite exhaustive. It’s International collection includes European and Asian art, photography, fashion, sculpture, and ceramics and quite a collection from some of the foremost European masters such as Bernini, Bordone and Rodin. The gallery layout kept kids in mind as there are plenty of activities for them to take up. Best of all, it’s free, so you can keep coming back here and carefully and leisurely browse through the displays.

Lovely as always. I went with my work and the school teachers on the tour with us were amazing. I always see so many things when I go on excursions, but not at the pace I'd like to see, so it always warrants a trip by myself to look a little longer and take in some of the exhibits. We had lunch in a small garden outside with tables and chairs, filled with many species of succulents drenched in sunlight
Must go. They always have so much going on. The exhibitions have been amazing. Especially the Dior and seeing the large skulls stacked up was impressive. Its usually free. Or I always pre purchase tickets. Its a lot faster getting in. Take a minimum half a day. The shop is well stocked
If you’re in Melbourne, this is one place you MUST visit! It has so much you could spend the entire day here. I love how there is a good range of exhibitions both collections and temporary exhibits. They have a couple of free tours and places to just chill. Highly recommend!
Nice place to be on a sunny Sunday. Lots of exhibit, both paid and free, for the lovers of art. The facility a nice waterfall facade that is refreshing to look at. The area is a disabled-friendly place, and has a medical bay if medical needs arises. The place is accessible by both public and private transport. They have gallery shops, cafe and restaurant.
I have had so many great experiences here. NGV is the giant of cultural experiences in Melbourne. My parents have a picture of them in front of the fountains when they first arrived in Australia in the 1980s... the tradition will live on. Can't wait to bring my own children here one day to put their hands in the fountain.
