I popped in here but the exhibitons seemed to be closed for some reason. However the building was modern & stunningly done for the purpose, cafe looked great and the small shop was pretty cool. The locals told me there are good exhibitions here.

A fantastic addition to the town. Very interesting local artists and visiting exhibitions. The cafe is the best place to have a light lunch, tea or coffee.

Went to see Landseer's Monarch of the Glen painting. What a marvellous opportunity in little Kirkcudbright! The museum is bright, modern and free. Lots of other fine art exhibits on three floors. A splendid amenity.
