We invite Members to an exclusive talk on Pharaoh, the 2024 NGV Melbourne Winter Masterpieces® exhibition that explores the timelessness of ancient Egypt.

Join us for this special introduction to the landmark exhibition that celebrates three thousand years of ancient Egyptian art and culture, just for Members and their guests.

Through more than 500 objects, including monumental sculpture, architecture, temple statuary, exquisite jewellery, papyri, coffins and a rich array of funerary objects, Pharaoh explores the phenomenon of those all-powerful kings claiming a divine origin.

Members also have the opportunity to see the exhibition before it opens to the public. Join us for an exclusive preview on 13 June, 2–5pm. Learn more and book your ticket
