The National Gallery of Victoria's prized works include Australian classics 'The Pioneer' and 'Lost by Fredrick McCubbin, 'A mountain scene' by Turner, Rodin's 'Balzac', Constable's 'Clouds', Man Ray's 'Kiki with African Mask' and 'Railway Guard' by Sidney Nolan, but the collection reflects the status of the gallery as Australia's oldest, and includes works from the major schools and periods of artistic endeavour.

One of the most interesting attractions is part art, part architecture: the 'Leonard French ceiling' – one of the world's largest pieces of suspended glass, which hangs from over the ceiling creating playful patterns of colour on the galleries and foyer below. Melbourne's first 'water wall' is by the entrance.
