We visited during the one rainy day we had on our week long vacation and were not disappointed to have to wait out the thunderstorms.

The Gallery wasn't very big nor did it have a lot of exhibits. But, it was a nice stop along the way. There is a theater in the building for special events. Very nice building.

I'm so glad that you enjoyed your experience at the BNG! Families will enjoy the activities we have for children, focusing on Peter Woolcock's illustrations of zany creatures and a scavenger hunt for the main exhibition. Please visit us again soon!

Try to get here at 10 a.m. when it opens and the friendly young art curator will give a brief but very interesting introduction
