NGV Membership

NGV Members, previously the National Gallery Society of Victoria, was founded in 1947 by Sir Keith Murdoch and Daryl Lindsay to encourage involvement with the Gallery, and support the acquisition of new works for the NGV Collection.

For more than 60 years, our valued NGV Members have contributed to the Gallery through the purchase of artworks and regular attendances at our many exhibitions, countless events and a wide range of programs.

As the biggest supporter group of the NGV, and largest gallery membership organisation in the country, NGV Members is the backbone of the National Gallery of Victoria.  Membership funds provide vital support to the work of the NGV and contribute to the life of the Gallery through all the excitement, dedication and passion that accompanies our Membership group, its special benefits and programs. 

We invite you to support the institution that contributes so much to our community by becoming an NGV Member.  Be part of this vibrant community, meet new people and start enjoying the special programming, many events and sensational benefits that form part of your Membership.
