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.


Melbourne now countdown – day 50

Calling all passionate collectors, enthusiasts and hobbyists of Melbourne!

Got an inkling for ink bottles? Crazy for cacti? A penchant for tin wind-up toys, vintage vinyl, swap cards, snow domes, Victorian-era electric shock therapy apparatus? The NGV would love to hear from you and see your delectable collectibles.

The NGV wants to hear from passionate collectors, specialists, off-beat enthusiasts; the purveyors, hobbyists, cultural groups and doyennes of special interest and for you to transform Melbourne Now’s Community Hall into a swap meet of your heart’s desire!

Community Hall is dedicated to the communities of Melbourne. It will be a prominent feature at NGV International that will showcase the talent and diversity that exists throughout our vibrant city through a daily rotating program of talks, performances, demonstrations, workshops and Show and Tell. So come show off and share your collection or special interest at the NGV.
