National Gallery Of Victoria - Review

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. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Melbourne Itinerary 6 Days.

National Gallery Of Victoria, Melbourne Reviews

  • Amazing experience!! I always make time to visit the galleries in cities that I visit and found that this place ranks near the top!! Great staff, beautiful building, great location/exhibits! I visited the gallery every few months while living in Melbourne because I enjoyed the gallery so much! Highly recommend this place for an afternoon visit to both locals and travellers. Only reason I have given this a 4 star is because my favourite Gallery is in Europe.

  • Culture and education is what makes a society rich. NGV never fails to impress from the free, to the paid for exhibitions it has everything for everyone. I love the huge paintings and bronze statues. I wish I could create such beautiful pieces. We should be grateful for such an enriching experience. Staff and security are very helpful.. Modern art bedazzles me.

  • Highly recommend spending some time at this art gallery if you're a visitor new to the area or you're a long time resident. The artifacts inside the permanent collection are expansive and stunning, it's a bit of a hike just to walk through all the galleries. The collection varies from Asia to European art and everything in between with many time periods covered. A few things to note: the line for the temporary exhibition can be quite long. Took me 30 minutes to get a ticket standing in line. Discounts are available for AMEX card holders. Since there's no timed entry to the special exhibition, it can be quite crowded inside.

  • Main gallery exhibitions are free to all.... Amazing selection of art... Adore the stain glass ceiling area... They provide cushions and seats to lie on to look up at it... Providing an excellent opportunity to meditate and relax... They have put a lot of thought into the children's area... Giving them a fantastic opportunity to get to know art in an interactive way... My only criticism is that they have moved the Australian artists to a different venue, but at least they have kept the water wall on the way in.... Fond memories from childhood, and doesn't disappoint as an adult

  • Amazing gallery with brilliant collections for every taste. In particular, the European collection has done gems. The Asian art section is also fantastic, though a bit more time could’ve been spent on the Japanese gallery. The exhibitions that come here, such as the Hokusai exhibition, are awesome and well worth the money.
