The National Gallery of Victoria announced today that it will re-open its doors to the public on June 27, 2020.
In line with the Victorian Governments move to ease restrictions, based on the advice of the Chief Health Officer, the NGV is pleased to announce it will re-open both NGV International and NGV Australia on June 27, 2020, said Tony Ellwood AM, Director, NGV.
The wellbeing of our staff and visitors remains of the utmost importance. In accordance with Victorian Government and Creative Victoria guidelines, the NGV will ensure appropriate public health and physical distancing measures are put in place to ensure the safety of our staff and visitors, he said.
These measures will include free timed ticketing, appropriate queue management and increased cleaning of facilities, as well as increased hand sanitiser stations.
The NGV will host special interest groups from June 22, in order to give priority access to members of the community in need.
The NGV will continue to deliver a dynamic range of virtual art, design and learning experiences for our visitors at home and will also launch a range of digital self-guided tours of the NGV Collection galleries for our visitors to enjoy on-site upon re-opening, he said.
