We went to see the Monet exhibition and booked tickets on line. We also were able to book a tour of the wonderful Melbourne Exhibition Building.

The first thing you'll notice as you enter is the cascading water wall, an indication of the amazing exhibits you'll encounter inside. There' a free cloak room where you can deposit your coats and prams/ strollers. In the main foyer is a blue pool installation with porcelain bowls, creating acoustic sounds as they gently tap each other. Call of the Walls was geared towards kids, where they could 'add' to the artwork by drawing on the walls. Overall, a great visit for kids if your little ones are inquisitive and have the attention span. Will definitely go back again and again.

Visited the National Gallery of Victoria to see the Monet exhibition.
Although I had seen it in Paris a few years ago, it was interesting to revisit the exhibition with additional paintings I hadn't seen before.

The foyer is beautiful and the room where we attended a function is was stunning. Stained glass ceiling and beautiful table settings.

We visited the NGV on a Sunday afternoon in school holidays. It was quite crowded but still very enjoyable. The gallery has done an excellent job of displaying these fine works of Monet. It is worth paying extra for the guided commentary on iPod. This is a definite must do if visiting Melbourne this winter.
