When do these new prices go into effect?
The new prices for NGV Membership will take effect as of 9am on Tuesday December 1st, 2015 and will appear on all printed and online material. As of this time, previously distributed iterations of joining and renewal forms, and printed brochures will become redundant.

Why are membership prices changing?
The NGV is dedicated to providing affordable and accessible benefits to our valued members. This price adjustment allows us to continue to provide the same high level of service though costs such as postage and security have risen. This will also allow us to continue to improve and increase the range of programs, facilities and benefits available. This will be the first price adjustment since the prices were increased in 2011.

Why have some prices decreased?
We are taking this opportunity to review our pricing structure and make improvements. To this effect, members joining over two or three years can enjoy savings of 10% and 20% respectively. This price adjustment provides for more equitable pricing across all membership categories and over multiple years.

Will the membership benefits offering change?
The team at NGV Members is working hard to improve the offering of benefits, programs and events for all members. As well as continuing to provide the extensive range of NGV Members benefits, events and special offers, we are excited to share with you new and refreshed initiatives for NGV Members coinciding with the exciting range of summer exhibitions. These include:

  • Film Club and Members Social Art Classes
  • Regular evening dining and wine-tasting events
  • More workshop programs for children and families, exclusive for NGV Members
  • Art Travel Tours for Members
  • Exciting offers and benefits with local cultural organisations
