This museum great for art lover who love normal art like paintings like myself. The museum houses lots of different art paintings from different artists from different areas and they are some paintings that related to Scarborough and Yorkshire area.

Hidden on the crescent, just up from the beach, is a little piece of Heaven. It's the most wonderful place to spend a few hours.

I echo the review which said the art gallery ‘punches above its weight’ – it is a beautiful gallery that showcases a range of artists from Philip Mercier to William Etty to contemporary artists. The entry fee is £3, and offers incredible value as not...More

Last Wednesday it bucketed down so we visited here & the Rotunda Museum on a joint ticket. We had never been here before in a number of visits. There are some very good exhibits here especially of Scarborough over the years.
