From our team here at NGV, we’d like to express our very best wishes to our community at this time.

Due to the evolving nature of COVID-19 and after following closely the State and Federal Government’s advice, we have extended the NGV’s temporary closure until 30 June.

If you have pre-purchased tickets for current exhibitions or upcoming programs, our team will be in contact with you shortly to arrange full refunds.

We encourage you to visit our website and follow #NGVEveryDay on social media for updates and daily inspiration.

We are very grateful for the loyalty and understanding of the NGV community and wish everyone well during this time.


Byron the cat reviews NGV gift book Curious Cats

Despite the tragic oversight that I am not in it, this is my new favourite book. I didn’t really need to have my superiority over those who are privileged to share my home and food confirmed in print, but it has given me facts and figures about cats of the past with which I can impress my friends on the street.  Oh and it has some nice pictures of some old and not so old cats in it.  Not as handsome as me though.

I suggest that you go and buy it so your cat can be up-to-date when discussing important cat matters. Or give it to someone for Christmas so their cats also do not feel left out. Go on, off you go, hurry up. Food for the cat’s mind is almost as important as tuna in their bowl.
