From our team here at NGV, we would like to express our very best wishes to our community at this time. We are currently closed to the public and will reopen on Saturday, 27 June, 2020.
In line with Victorian Chief Health Officer’s guidance, the NGV will implement a variety of public health and physical distancing measures including free timed ticketing, appropriate queue management and increased deep cleaning of facilities, as well as increased hand sanitiser stations.
We encourage you to continue to visit our website and follow #NGVEveryDay on social media for updates on our reopening and daily inspiration.
We are very grateful for the loyalty of the NGV community and look forward to welcoming you back soon.
