<WH in Australia> Museums must see in Melbourne

I accidentally saw the exhibition “Sovereignty” yesterday at ACCA. Since today is Australia Day, I thought it’s the best opportunity to introduce those museums. General admission is free.

It was an insider tip from a landlord. It’s my favorite museum in the town. Exterior of design is so cool. They are bold and kind of weird. It’s just next to Malthouse. They present “Sovereignty” until March 26. Why I said it’s a good way to share this exhibition? Because Australia Day is a day that celebrates on January 26 every year, which the first European arrived in Australia in 1788. However, it’s kind of controversial. It might be an invasion day for Indigenous people. From “Sovereignty“, you might see something WAR banner which expressed their anger today.

Address: 111 Sturt Street, Southbank 3006 VIC
Opening hours: 10:00 – 17:00 (Tue – Fri); 11:00 – 17:00 (Weekends & public holidays)

2. NGV International
Good for inspiration. Perfect for children. Collection including everywhere, such as Asia, Europe, USA, etc. General entrance is free. I like to seek for peace there. Recently, they even hold up Friday Nights, which opens from 6pm to 10pm. Except exhibition, you can have live performances here. The activities last to March 10.

Address: 180 St Kilda Rd, Melbourne 3000 VIC
Opening hours: 10:00 – 17:00

3. NGV Australia
As it’s name, it presents the Australia art, Indigenous and non-Indigenous people included. Collection and exhibition area are smaller than NGV International. However, it’s always something to see and light up.

Address: Federation Square, Melbourne 3000 VIC
Opening hours: 10:00 – 17:00
