Stunning architecture, exhibits good but somehow does not engage us as some of the best museums. But it is free (except for some special exhibitions and So definitely worth a visit) particularly since it is so centrally located. Not very browsed either.

The Ian Potter Center is part of the NGV that focuses on Australian art. This time I saw a comprehensive exhibit about the Colonial period and the aboriginal reaction to it.

Not a huge museum and that is a good thing. We really liked the overview of Australian art and Joseph Brown collection; after all, that's why we were there. Paintings but also ceramics/pottery, furniture, clothing, jewelry made it very interesting.

Lovely new building in the federation Square complex. Excellent exhibitions, several visiting Australia's ugly past in regard to the first peoples. Well worth a visit. Right on the tram lines beside Flinders St Station

The exhibits were spread over 3 floors and contained some of the most iconic artworks by a good selection of Australian artists. Definitely worth a visit and even the free exhibits are wonderful.
