Free entry, Modern art, using clever photography. The main theme focuses on animals. Artist Graham Smith. Opposite the bus stop to Shanklin or Ventnor, a large free car park is just across the road.

A small and interesting museum. Plenty of corgi, dinky, triang items of the 1950's, 60's and 70's. Brought back a lot of memories from my childhood and the toys I played with at that time. A small entrance fee is charge and it only takes...More
