Published on : Tuesday, April 18, 2017

downloadThe National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) is not only Australia’s most popular gallery, but one of the top 20 most visited worldwide as revealed by the UK’s The Art Newspaper in its latest survey of global art museum attendance.

 

In 2016 the NGV was the 19th most popular gallery in the world with more than 2.6 million visitors across its two campuses. The 2016 ranking moved the gallery up two places from its 2015 ranking of 21.

 

The ranking places the gallery in the company of Paris’ Musee d’Orsay and New York’s Museum of Modern Art. The NGV’s attendance figures have been rapidly increasing year on year with just over two million visitors in 2014, 2.4 million in
2015 and a high of 2.6 million last year.

 

The NGV’s program in 2016 included the record-breaking Andy Warhol|Ai Weiwei summer exhibition, the Melbourne Winter Masterpieces exhibition Degas: A New Vision and the Summer Kids Festival which attracted over 22,000 children in just 11 days.
