Wonderful exhibition.The section Australia 1770-1861 brings together a huge amount of colonial material that is rarely or ever shown in one place The Frontier wars component was absorbing, confronting and thought provoking.

Amazing! Despite arriving late in the afternoon and having to queue for 15mins to get in we thoroughly enjoyed the exhibition. Thrilled to see some of our favourite artists’ work and discover unknown artists! Superb exhibition, great value!

2018-Jun-10 I went there for the special painting called “The Lady and the Unicorn”. Unfortunately all tickets were sold out (-。-;) Of course I still took a look of the other paintings. It is free for the rest of the displays!

Winter Masterpieces every year at NGV: these exhibitions are a great drawcard, and deserve the accolades. The MoMA exhibition is no exception. It is extensive - it covers 2 whole areas of the Gallery and requires probably at least 3 hours to do it justice....More
