I went to the Exchange Art Gallery after visiting Newlyn Art Gallery and Penlee House in Penzance. The gallery is a small building, so you probably won't spend a lot of time there. However, entrance is free, the building is conveniently located close to the bus and train stations, and if you enjoy modern art, you'll probably enjoy a visit to the Exchange.
When I was there, I saw 4 fantastic kinetic sculptures by Andy Currie. These made very good use of the space available in the gallery. I found them exciting and inspiring, and was glad I'd made my visit. I probably wouldn't go to Penzance just to visit the Exchange alone, however, in conjunction with seeing Newlyn Art Gallery, and Penlee House, you can spend a very pleasant morning or afternoon enjoying modern and more traditional art. All of that is good on a rainy day.
I also had a lunch of a warm pasta salad at the Exchange. The food was OK: good, deep flavours, and cheap with a bottle of apple juice - all under £6. The cafe and shop at the gallery are very small, but the day I went it wasn't crowded, so I didn't have to wait around for long.
