Melbourne has something in store for travelers from all walks of life and art lovers will be especially impressed by it. This Australian metropolis has many amazing art museums and galleries in store and here are some of the very best.

National Gallery of Victoria

If you only have enough time to visit a single gallery while in Melbourne, this one should make the cut. It’s Australia’s oldest and most visited art museum and it features an impressive collection of Australian and international art.

Heide Museum of Modern Art

Not all of Melbourne’s best galleries and museums are located in the city center. If you’re happy to look a little bit further on your quest to find its most impressive art centers, check out the Heide Museum of Modern Art. It’s located in the suburb of Bulleen and it’s best known for its impressive sculpture garden.

Hosier Lane

If classic museums and galleries simply aren’t your thing, and you prefer artistic spaces with a more urban feel, it doesn’t get much better than Hosier Lane. It’s Melbourne’s No. 1 street art hot spot and its walls are covered with works of art by over a hundred local graffiti and street artists.
