  • Great place, free.
  • One of the must see in Melbourne - I love the mix of paintings, photography, design furnitures and sound systems. You got all your senses engaged. The building itself is already a reason to see it.
  • The Great Exibition by Patrick Pound was actually more than great. Some navigation guides within the gallery, especially for the 2nd floor, will make the experience much more pleasant.
  • The best collection of Australian contemporary art I've seen yet! Changed my previously dismissive view of Aus contemp art
  • The 200 years australian fashion was great!
  • Great art location just off federation square.
  • Awesome place to spend some of your Sunday afternoon.
  • Good collection of national artists on lower floors, though I preferred the modern works on the upper floors. Impressive building architecture too modern yet not overwhelming.
  • The modern art and changing special exhibitions
  • Has a few iconic Australian pieces but enjoyed the other modern exhibits much more.
  • For free exhibitions arrive at about 4pm you'll have plenty of time and there'll be less people :)
  • amazing place with great pieces of art, a must come!
  • The home of the NGV's Australian art collection. Enjoy yourself a Boyd, Drysdale, Russell and perhaps some Shearing of the Rams
