The National Gallery of Victoria is an art museum in Melbourne founded in 1861. The NGV is Australia's oldest, largest and most visited art museum, with 2 million visits every year. The NGV's international art collection encompasses European and international paintings, fashion and textiles, photography, prints and drawings, Asian art, decorative arts, Mesoamerican art, Pacific art, sculpture, antiquities and global contemporary art. The gallery has around 75,000 works of art with a total value of nearly $A4 billion and an annual income of around $A100 million a year. 

It has strong collections in areas as diverse as old masters, Greek vases, Egyptian artefacts and historical European ceramics, and contains the largest and most comprehensive range of artworks in Australia. The NGV is now spread over 2 buildings a short distance from each other at the southern end of the CBD. The Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia, in Federation Square opened in 2003 and houses the Australian art collection. Grounds' building, just south of the Yarra River, houses the international collection. It reopened in December 2003 after 4 years of renovations by architect Mario Bellini.
