Visiting Melbourne's iconic National Gallery of Victoria with children

The National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) is Melbourne's tourism pride and joy.

There are two separate buildings belonging to the NGV in the heart of the city; NGV International on St Kilda Road and the Ian Potter Centre at Federation Square.

Take the majesty of a world-class orchestra, stir in your favourite festive tunes and sprinkle over a large pinch of musical magic. The result? Christmas with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra!

NGV Australia aka the Ian Potter Centre is dedicated to Australian art whereas the NGV International showcases some of the world's great artists and designers.

Over the course of the year, both art hubs welcome children to visit the exhibits but also to take part in hands-on activities, usually during school holidays.

NGV International is Australia’s oldest, largest, and most visited gallery, and attracts families all through the year.

Visting NGV International at any time of the year and your children will love running their fingers through the waterwall at the front entrance.

You're invited to tour the new, custom designed environments at Guardian Early Learning – Blackburn Village.
