The National Gallery of Victoria is an art museum located in Melbourne, Australia. Established in 1861, it is the oldest and largest museum in Australia. The main part of the museum is located at St Kilda Road, in the heart of the Southbank City of Arts, with an annex at Federation Square.
Thanks to the generous donations of wealthy citizens, especially the industrialist Alfred Felton, the National Gallery was able to start buying important collections of old and modern masterpieces from abroad. The museum currently houses 63,000 works of art. Its visitors per year 1,650,000 (2006/2007).
