The National Gallery of Victoria: Ian Potter Centre

The National Gallery of Victoria, or NGV, has two main locations in Melbourne. There is the International Campus beside the Arts Centre and the Ian Potter Centre which focuses on Australian art. Both museums have free entry to the permanent collections and are well worth the trip, however, the Ian Potter Centre is my favourite. It is located in Federation Square right on the banks of the Yarra River and across from Flinders Street Station.

On the first floor you will find a large display of aboriginal art – everything from traditional bark paintings, to sculptures to bold and bright modern art.

On the second and third floors you will find classical European style art as well as modern and abstract works.

No matter what type of art you enjoy you will find something at the NGV: Ian Potter Centre that you like. I highly recommend a visit here if you travel to Melbourne.

Love, Lee
