From our team here at NGV, we’d like to express our very best wishes to our community at this time.

Due to the evolving nature of COVID-19 and after following closely the State and Federal Government’s advice, we have extended the NGV’s temporary closure until 30 June.

If you have pre-purchased tickets for current exhibitions or upcoming programs, our team will be in contact with you shortly to arrange full refunds.

We encourage you to visit our website and follow #NGVEveryDay on social media for updates and daily inspiration.

We are very grateful for the loyalty and understanding of the NGV community and wish everyone well during this time.


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!

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.
