I went to the Dior Show, gorgeous building and the show was spectacularly presented. Word of advice: order tickets on line.

Wow, what can I say. The Christian Dior exhibition was wonderful. The gallery was easy to find, easy to get to. The staff were very helpful. There was a long queue, but it kept moving.. well worth the visit

The Dior exhibition was a fabulous experience. I’m seriously thinking of joining the NGV as I know others who have. May be something to consider when I retire

Something old and something new. Always interesting and always impressive. Begins with the water wall and continues all the way through the building and into the various exhibits.

The building itself quite big and classic and it's free entrance here. This National Gallery shows art from many cultures and from famous artists. During the week may have many school kids too even that is not to busy.

Two hours in the Van Gogh at least. Brilliant and worth the queue.
