The National Gallery of Victoria

What you can expect

Melbourne is a capital that's renowned for embracing all things art, and there are few more comprehensive displays of the entire spectrum of the medium than the NGV. Located in the city centre, a visit here will allow you to explore the incredible gallery of modern, contemporary and antique pieces on display; hosting more than just paintings, the gallery proudly boasts over 68,000 pieces of work including sculptures and life-size pieces from world famous artists. Alternatively, take a guided tour of the National Gallery of Victoria and fall in love with the beauty of art on a whole new level as you're provided with further insight on each of the pieces, their artist and hidden meanings. Hosting multiple temporary exhibitions throughout the year - including an upcoming exhibit to celebrate the artwork of Andy Warhol - to complement its robust permanent display, the National Gallery of Victoria will truly allow you to appreciate the raw talent of both local and international artists to the fullest.
