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.

NGV International


You and your family are invited to a Photography for Parents Workshop on Sunday 28th April 2019 at Fitzroy Gardens.
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.

From here you can head outside and enjoy the senenity of the gallery's garden space. BYO picnic and let the children explore. The ever-changing sculptures and exhibits mean there's always something new to see.

Back inside NGV International and there are many floors to discover, although the main attractions for children are usually on the ground level such as NGV Kids; a commissioned space with changing exhibits every season.

Entry to NGV International & NGV Australia is free, although touring exhibitions within both galleries may incur an extra fee. Previous touring art exhibits have seen the artworks of Andy Warhol, Jean Paul Gaultier, Dior and David Hockney grace the walls of Melbourne's much-loved gallery.
