Self-guided visits

Bookings are essential for all school and student groups. To protect the wellbeing of our community, NGV has implemented timed sessions with limited capacities for visitors. Large school groups may need to be split over different entry times.

Ticketed exhibitions

Book a self-guided visit to a ticketed exhibition and receive the discounted student group price and a complimentary ticket for one teacher per fifteen students. Important information about visiting the exhibition with your students is also provided.

Additional information


Group lockers are not currently available. Please avoid bringing items that require cloaking. This includes items that are not permitted in the Gallery, such as backpacks, large bags and umbrellas. Large items will need to be stored which may cause significant delays for your group when entering and departing the Gallery.

COVID Safe Plan

Teachers and group leaders are required to keep a record of students who attend with your group for contact tracing purposes.

All adults attending as part of the group will need to check in via the Service Victoria app by scanning the QR code in the foyer.
