I'm in Melbourne often enough - so why not write a bit about some places I've seen :)
Published May 13th 2017
To walk through history is a pretty exciting and intriguing thought - one that may not seem entirely possible in a day. However, with the exhibitions at the National Gallery of Victoria, it is a completely legitimate way to spend a day. And the best part is that it won't cost you a thing to take a walk throughout bygone eras.



The structure of the NGV allows you to follow a timeline of artistic wonder, starting in the Middle Ages with Medieval art pieces. There are also rooms dedicated to exploring ancient cultures through sculpture, paintings, and artefacts from civilisations that have long died out.



The entire set up of the gallery is designed as a way to inspire the senses and delight with their aesthetics. It is an easy place to navigate and the staff members are always helpful. The design of this gallery is to present all types of artwork in an enlightening way.


Each room and each exhibition has detailed information on the time period, the artist, and what the artwork itself represents. The NGV is open all week, making it accessible at any time that is convenient for you. You can learn more about paid exhibitions at the website, such as the current Andy Warhol and Ai Wei Wei exhibitions that are on at the moment.
