Really enjoyed walking around the exhibits. They put a lot of time and effort into the whole space. It's a great place to take locals and tourists. I really enjoyed spending an hour or so here walking around. It's good the exhibits change too.

With the gallery on our left, we took the second right turn and at the end of that road is an open air car park. 5 - 6 minutes walk back to the gallery.
