Beautiful building with a surprising amount in it. Chap in the upstairs art room was lovely to the kids and they were very inspired by their visit.

We were walking by snd stepped in. Interesting place; history of the university. Pity it's small.. Pity there is no cafe on a lovely top terrace that offers wonderful view of the beach.
