The Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia reviews
Amazing museum. Lot of classic and modern Australian Aboriginal art. I spent there few hours because they have lot of very interesting expositions that I wanted to see on detail. People at the museum are very professional and polite and always available to help you. Very tidy and clean museum. It's for free (unless specific temporary expositions) and it's a must if you are visiting Melbourne ❤️
The Potter Gallery has most major Australian artists on display, from Nolan to Smart. The collections are rotated frequently, allowing many revisits. Contemporary artists can occasionally be confronting, and exhibitions are a mixed bag, and should be considered based on your tastes. The gallery itself is spacious, well lit, and has plenty of seating if your feet and or hips get a bit tired. There is also a cafe on the top floor, plus a gift shop on the ground floor. Highlyrecommended, and it's free 😁👍
