National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne

Founded in 1861 in Melbourne

The National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) is the oldest and most visited gallery in Australia.  Situated over two magnificent buildings – NGV International and NGV Australia – the Gallery hosts a wide range of international and local artists, exhibitions, programs and events; from contemporary art to major international historic exhibitions, fashion and design, architecture, sound and dance.

Founded in 1861, today the NGV holds the most significant collection of art in the region; a vast treasury of more than 70,000 works that span thousands of years and a wealth of ideas, disciplines and styles. It is a collection that is yours, and it’s free!  We warmly welcome you to share in these riches and the many activities, exhibitions and events developed at the NGV for us all to enjoy.
