People walk past Melbourne's NGV and its fountain at dusk.

We're moving into the second part of 2020, and while a good portion of the year has been spent staring at four walls, we can now well and truly start planning to get out and about more from the start of June.

It was announced today that Melbourne institution, NGV, will be reopening to the public on Saturday 27 June.

“In line with the Victorian Government’s 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.

The measures being implemented at NGV when it reopens includes free timed ticketing, appropriate queue management, increased cleaning of facilities, and an increase in hand sanitiser stations.

Free timed tickets will be able to be booked from Saturday 20 June on the NGV website.

Exhibitions currently showing at NGV include Collecting Comme, and Japanese Modernism.
