Beautiful gallery...easy to get around and displays by local artists always a good thing!

It's an art gallery by local Sabahan artists regardless of ages. The art exhibition is changing every few months. For a person that appreciate art, I find calm and peace here. There are spacious parking spaces and the entrance ticket is very cheap for Malaysians....More
