“Holds its own as an art gallery with any in the world”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Melbourne made its money out of the gold rush and clearly some of those who made their fortunes invested in philanthropy as the collection of European Art and Crafts is first class - and well presented. Impressive

A lovely exhibition, with some paintings I'd never seen before, and a very informative interactive display.

“the water wall is amazing!!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

I went to the NGV with friends to see an exhibition in June 2013. I loved the water wall - anyone of any age could spend ages tracing the water with their hands. I've been blind since birth and there wasn't an awful lot to feel - so I wouldn't recommend it to anyone with a visual impairment.
