While in Melbourne we took time out to view the MOMA Exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria and it was very busy. The pictures on display are a snapshot of what you would see in NY. It was almost impossible to stand back and...More

Recently saw the 'Colony' exhibition, which was quite good, with some interesting objects. Other displays were also worth visiting, though an hour was probably enough.

The exhibition "Colony" that runs from March to July 2018 at the NGV Australia is huge. If you wanted to look at all the art and objects in detail and read all the information panels, you could spend there all day. The exhibition is structured...More

The museum has an excellent collection of Australian art. It was a perfect first stop in learning about the art, culture and history of Australia.

We visited this exhibition with the intention of gauging the level of artistry from these emerging artists in their final year of high school; and were not disappointed as the range of methods, material and subjects were diverse and thought provoking. This small but intriguing...More

I went to see Australian art but that room was under repair. The atrium and the 3rd floor Aboriginal art was my favorite. It is not a large museum and there was no charge. I enjoyed my visit.

Stunning architecture, exhibits good but somehow does not engage us as some of the best museums. But it is free (except for some special exhibitions and So definitely worth a visit) particularly since it is so centrally located. Not very browsed either.

even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air

No, both the galleries in Melbourne have free access if you want to come in and wander around their standard displays. If there are special exhibitions running, there is generally a charge for those. You can still enter... More
