As regional museums go (sorry for calling this 'regional') this ain't no Louvre........ It would be a mistake, though, to just walk in and out and 'tick the box'. This art gallery is very, very well set up. The collection is displayed by theme, cutting...More

An excellent example of a modern museum. Well though-out rooms with many displays having explanatory text to help people engage with the works. The thematic rooms for the European section were a triumph and my kids enjoyed it a lot. Friendly and engaging staff.

We visited this lovely art gallery last week and spent 3 hours there enjoying the art and the wonderful objects that are housed in it. The building interior doesn't disappoint with skylights high in the ceilings. Café was good too.
