This is one of the buildings which will be open to the public as part of Melbourne Open House 2012. You can find full details of the buildings here. Because there so many buildings - far too many to hope to see in a weekend, we have compiles a list of suggestions at White Hat's Suggestions for Melbourne Open House 2012.

Located in what White Hat regards as a stunning building in Federation Square and consisting of twelve galleries over three levels, this centre houses the finest and most comprehensive collections of Australian art in the world. The collection contains 20,000 works, and at any one time there are 1,800 on display in its 20 galleries.

The Indigenous Art section contains works by William Barak, Ginger Riley, Munduwalawala, Peggy Napangardi Jones an Lin Onus. It also includes Emily Kngwarreye's Big Yam Dreaming.
