Gallery rooms are designed to accommodate large groups, while the benches give you a place to sit and contemplate the artwork.

  • Brilliant experience. We loved it's eclectic mix and the rooms that showed things like portraits through the ages! Nice bar at the bottom too, although they adhere to strict kitchen opening times. So if you want to eat plan that into your itinerary!
  • Staff were friendly! But the art wasn’t to my taste! Some of the older more classical parts where okay but the more modern installations weren’t very good! The best part was the draw your own kids section!
