It was a really interesting museum however the number of exhibitions was very limited. Quite a small museum although the exhibitions themselves where very interesting. Definitely worth a visit!

Once you've located it, it usually delivers with a varied programme of up to the minute exhibitions featuring Chinese artists from China and the UK. There is also a residency space. Nice gift items as well.

I was doing shopping in Arndale Centre and this museum is literally behind it. The exhibition - 'Aquatopia' is so inspiring and made me think about the way I use water and how can I make a change. They focus on the theme with great...More
