Our visit was impacted by both the cafe and at least one gallery being closed. The exhibitions that we saw were quite good, including the Cyclone Tracey exhibit. Overall the museum / gallery is quite small, but worth a visit.

The museum display of cyclone tracey was extremely interesting and informative. Pictures before and after the cyclone told a graphic story. The darkened room with the sounds of the cyclone was a small display of the frightful power of nature
