A gallery which is well worth a visit. We made two visits in two days. The sculpture room is particularly interesting. The coffee's pretty good, too.

Big Art room fantastic, and good for getting kids out into the galleries with spot the difference sheets. Combine with a visit to library, World Museum and St. George's Hall for a great day.
