NGV’s Van Gogh hits record 420,000 visitors

NGV’s Van Gogh hits record 420,000 visitors
July 10, 2017

The National Gallery of Victoria’s Van Gogh and the Seasons has welcomed more than 420,000 visitors, making it the most popular ticketed exhibition in the gallery’s 156 year history.

Van Gogh and the Seasons tops the previous record holder, the NGV’s 2015/16 summer exhibition, Andy Warhol/Ai Weiwei which attracted 399,127 visitors.

With three days before it leaves Melbourne, Van Gogh and the Seasons was originally scheduled to close on Sunday 9th July but was extended to Wednesday 12th July, with extended opening hours due to extraordinary demand.

Over the weekend the gallery welcomed thousands of visitors through the night with a special 24-hour viewing of the exhibition while, for its final days, it will be open from 8am until 11pm.

Part of the Melbourne Winter Masterpieces series, Van Gogh and the Seasons – the 22nd Melbourne Winter Masterpieces exhibition - has been a drawcard for Victorian audiences of all ages and visitors from across Australia and beyond.

With something to offer all year round, NGV’s next drawcard will be The House of Dior fashion exhibition which will open in August followed by the NGV Triennial - a major free summer exhibition.
