This gallery is quite small and compact covering two floors in an old Victorian building. When we went there the ground floor had a Beryl Cook exhibition and the Canaletto was on display in the foyer. We mainly went to see the advertised Canaletto and Lowry, but honestly found many of the other paintings much more interesting! There is one... More

We happened across this museum, and were thrilled to visit when a Beryl Cook exhibition was on show. This we thoroughly enjoyed - her paintings are so full of humour and joy. Paintings in the rest of the museum were good too - but less fun than dear old Beryl!

I loved the way the glassware was displayed by colour in different display cases. The ceramics were also set out in an interesting way with so much to see in the cabinet. Well done to whoever decided not to have the usual boring rows of items each individually tagged. This was much more innovative.

I found this gallery a lovely mixture, on the ground floor was an exhibition of Beryl Cook, pictures which made my and my husband laugh! Some seemed to be for sale. Up stairs was a delightful gallery, very Victorian with wonderful seats in the middle which made looking at the amazing collection, very relaxing. The mix of pictures was lovely,... More

This was part of the 3-exhibition package I bought for 20 pounds, and I went there to see all the Canaletto paintings. There was one. The other exhibition was very modern, and didn't interest me at all. They had a standing exhibition upstairs, of mostly local interest paintings and items, which was nice as such. They also had a few... More

Had a look around, there are two floors. On the first floor are a variety of paintings including Gainsburgh and a Lowery. At the moment there is an exhibition of Beryl Cook paintings which had a small fee for. It was well worth it. The building itself was wonderful and worth a look around.

Not much here to see and no cafe, just a coffee machine which was broken on the day of my visit. Worth popping in to look at the building and there's one interpretative panel on the stairs with a bit of history. The rest of the gallery is dull and Holbourne Museum is less than 5 minutes walk away over... More

Some nice bits and pieces in the collection but not enough to entertain us for long. It is fine if you are passing by, but don't make a trip especially for this unless you have an interest in the downstairs temporary exhibition (which was actually very good).
