What a wonderful facility for local people to have and for it to be free. It somewhere that I would use kind of like an encyclopedia and visit time and again to learn a bit more each time. It is like getting snippets of Art and Ceramics, furniture, design and being able to retain small amounts of information/learning each time.... More

I'm going to be honest and say that an art gallery is never going to get 5 stars from a 21 year old male but I was fascinated by the art on show and the craftsmanship of some of the furniture as well. It's not the biggest art gallery that I've been to but still not too bad.
