NileGuide Expert Says:
It’s unthinkable to visit Melbourne and not stop in at the National Gallery of Victoria. Visit mid-week to avoid the weekend rush and don’t even think about visiting on Mother’s Day.

Located on the tree-lined St Kilda Road, The National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) is home to a world-class international art collection. The permanent display offers visitors some of the biggest names in international art, but be sure to check the temporary exhibition program in advance to make the most out of your visit. The worldwide collaboration between leading curators provides for an exciting catalogue of work.
Don't miss The Great Hall with its rainbow prism stained-glass ceiling or the Water Trail permanent display out front. The easiest way to get round is to take a free tour-guide so you don't miss any of the displays.
