Ian Potter Museum of ArtThe Ian Potter Museum of Art at Melbourne University is worth visiting both for its collection and its own architecture. Designed by one of Melbourne's most interesting contemporary architects, Nonda Katsalidis, it incorporates parts of older university buildings such as the Napier Waller's Art Deco stained glass window from the old Wilson Hall

(From time to time, the gallery has exhibitions which entail an entry charge, but these only occupy one area and access to the rest of the gallery is free.)

The gallery is a bequest to the university from the businessman Sir Ian Potter. Thank you Mr Potter for providing one of the places in Melbourne which I enjoy visiting on a regular basis.

His bequest also funds the Ian Potter Centre (the National Gallery of Victoria's Australian collection) at Federation Square.
