Art tours

Due to COVID-19 and in the interests of public health and safety, all art tours have been cancelled until further notice. 

The Parliament of Victoria has an extensive art collection, collated over time from when Parliament House first opened in 1856. The highlights of this unique collection include portraits of former premiers of Victoria, the first woman elected to Parliament at a general election, Queen Victoria, Prince Albert and a gallery of Indigenous art.

The Parliament House Art Tour caters for members of the public with an interest in art and the history of Victoria. Your visit will last about 90 minutes and includes a short presentation and a complementary booklet which catalogues the collection.
