If there was ever a beautiful building in Newcastle/Gateshead going to waste, here it is! It could be put to much better use than having a few exhibits of totally ridiculous modern art. Since when is an inflatable cloud or washing lines with sheets on considered art? Also, when have grey concrete blocks been anything other than dull and uninspiring, certainly not worthy of art status. This place is a waste of taxpayers money?
The staff are miserable, rude, and unapproachable looking down their snooty noses at you, and god forbid should you get too close to the terrible exhibitions! One particular highlight was a massive room filled with utterly microscopic exhibits, including a pile of drawing pins on the floor!! Two floors were closed at the time of visiting. The best part was the children's floor. Much more inspiring than the other garbage.
Utter rubbish. Imagine how good this iconic building could be!! It's a total waste.
The ridiculously fast lifts and viewing box are the only saving graces!
