The National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) is one of the finest spots to visit whilst in Melbourne that won’t break the bank. Get to the NGV in Melbourne’s art precinct by taking a stroll along the Yarra River from Waterfront Melbourne Apartments. This state gallery houses an entire world of art inside its walls and welcomes exclusive exhibitions from local and international artists. Free to enter, you can take the time out from the bustling city to enjoy the permanent exhibitions of which take you around the world and through the centuries, all within one visit. For an extra cost you can enjoy the limited time exhibitions that travel the world to get here and can be easily missed if the opportunity is not taken to enjoy them whilst you’re there. Visit here with the whole family and spend an entire day losing yourself in the dozens of areas of the gallery. Our recommendation for your visit; on the way in (and on the way out) feel the wall of cascading water at the main entrance of the gallery. Most notable, take a break in the Great Hall, look up and appreciate the stunning stained-glass ceiling.
