Trip advisor recommends 1 1/2 to 2 hours to view. It took 5 of us 20 minutes. Hardly anything to see. Very disappointing. Glad we hadn’t paid to go in.

A combination of a shop, a cafe and a gallery with INTERESTING exhibits. We loved the puddles, no the roof does not leak! I am not a gallery person but this was quirky and funny and I loved it. Do not miss this one.

Beautiful Victorian building with award-winning 2010 extension and remodel. The cafe upstairs serves great cake while the shop is good for gifts.

Not usually a great fan of art galleries but this was fascinating and well worth a visit. We were only there about half an hour which was long enough for our kids and there was a fantastic curator on hand to explain and question the...More

Interesting art in an interesting building. Lovely old Edwardian facade with new concrete galleries inside. The cafe and shop is amazing too.
