Beautiful building with lots of memories. Unfortunately now dwarfed by huge modern buildings & more to come with the building site around it. Try to ignore all the surrounding hassle & enjoy the building as it used to be,

The area around this building (Centenary Square) is currently being redveloped so you cannot get near this building nor get inside it. This work will carry on till summer 2019 when the Hall of Memory will reopen.
