It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas and Santa Claus is coming to town! The Gallery is closed Christmas Day only (back open Boxing Day!). So have a little sleep in before eating, drinking and being merry!

French artist Claude Monet was born #OnThisDay in 1840. If you happen to be wandering through our Impressionism Gallery, besides waterlilies, you may come across a familiar haystack! Can you spot it? http://bit.ly/nga29073

The Opening of the Australian National Gallery by Her Majesty the Queen: http://bit.ly/1xUfvJ2
(provided by the NGA Research Library and Archive) 

On 12 October 1982, after almost ten years of construction, the Gallery was officially opened by Queen Elizabeth II. This ABC produced video documents its construction, the royal ceremony, including an opening address by former Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser and an exclusive interview with the Gallery’s first director, James Mollison.

This video was originally on U-matic tapes and has been digitised by the NGA Research Library and Archive for preservation and access purposes. It examples our need to save audio-visual treasures in order to maintain and strengthen our cultural and historical identity.
