It is difficult to review galleries because everyone has different expectations and taste.. I can only say that I absolutely enjoy visiting this gallery; the building is a pleasure to walk in, and most of the exhibitions were quite thought provoking for me.
I often walked passed it and whenever I needed a short break from work or studies I enjoyed immensely a short visit there.
It is also right in the city centre (New Town) and with free entrance, so if you don't like it, you can just leave!
