This is the best Museum/Gallery I have ever visited. The organ recital was an unexpected delight. The exhibits go on and on and on - more surprises around every corner. There is so much to see, it could take a week. I will be returning soon, as I couldn't view enough in one afternoon.

Fantastic day with 3 grandchildren (ages 5 to 12). So much to see kept them enthralled and full of so many questions. The lunchtime pipe organ recital was such a treat when we took time out for lunch in the cafe. Superb!

Wonderful gallery with lots to see. The food in the cafe is good but the main attraction is the gallery. The shop has interesting purchases.

Great place for adults and children alike, especially on a rainy day (and you can get a few of these in Scotland).
