Tips from locals
The National Gallery of Victoria is Australia's oldest art museum, founded in 1861. It's home to an eclectic collection of nearly 70,000 works of art, with international and domestic exhibitions
Australia’s oldest, biggest, and most visited art museum. Nearly three million people visit the gallery every year and offers both free and paid exhibitions
Amazing art gallery. They have a great free exhibit if you aren't wanting to pay to see art. A must see!
One of the world's great art galleries. An interesting permanent collection and always one or two world-class travelling shows. The Garden Restaurant is great too. Don't miss this place. An easy tram ride from Bluestone Cottage.
Always an amazing display here. Make sure you check their opening hours before venturing down.
Often has a major exhibition on and we have had many guests who have come to Melbourne especially for these exhibitions.
Summer and Winter Master Exhibition are the must visits. A variety of free exhibitions are held all year round.
National Gallery of Victoria - see the classics and look out for touring exhibitions - most recently Jean Paul Gaultier!
