NPG update

Updated 5:30pm Monday 23 March 2020

Based on advice from Australian health experts - and the Federal Government’s direction to limit non-essential gatherings and comply with social distancing guidelines - the National Portrait Gallery Australia is closed until further notice.

Though our doors are closed, our collection and stories remain open for everyone to explore here online. We’re developing programs to keep cabin fever at bay so please check back regularly.

Until then you can still browse the collection; see (and vote for your favourite in) the National Photographic Portrait Prize and Darling Portrait Prize; and keep in touch via our socials: Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. You can also stay up to date via our fortnightly newsletter, Portrait News.

If you have pre-purchased exhibition tickets, bookings made online will automatically be refunded. For all other ticket refunds, please email bookings@npg.gov.au

Look out for one another and please stay safe.

We would like to thank our partners.
