Has only been open a short time but is already proving a hit with visitors and locals alone. Excellent displays with some changing thus giving variety. Area set aside for young children is a great idea and the small in-house cafe is excellent.

I was delighted to see original artwork of jessie King which I had previously seen in old books. The collection of silver is well worth visiting too. Lots to see for free.

This art gallery is a must. The interior off the building itself is interesting enough but when we were there in June there were a number of good exhibitions on display. Worth a visit.
