National Portrait Gallery (NPG)

Located on King Edward Terrace in Canberra, the National Portrait Gallery is home to Australia’s portrait collection.

After a short hiatus, the National Portrait Gallery is reopening at 10am on Saturday 14 September (and every day after that, except Christmas Day)!

We’ll be celebrating all that weekend with music, drawing and giveaways; come and get your face painted, meet our Director Karen Quinlan and take a free highlights tour (in whatever order you like).

We’ll also have a mix of your old favourites and new hangs ready for your gazing pleasure – including the exhibitions Primed and The Look.
