Aside from the fact that there’s a fountain chock-full of coins out the front (don’t you dare, hobo), the NGV is really worth a visit. Though you’ll sometimes have to splash a bit of cash for temporary catalogues, such as when Van Gogh and the like swing through, all permanent exhibitions are free, and there’s a solid mix of modern shit and not-so-modern shit that is sure to challenge your perspectives and delight your eyeballs. Oh – and the Royal Botanic Gardens are straight across the road: the perfect spot for an after-art snooze sesh.
