I went to see Australian art but that room was under repair. The atrium and the 3rd floor Aboriginal art was my favorite. It is not a large museum and there was no charge. I enjoyed my visit.

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
