  • Wow!!! Fascinating and inspiring centre for artists. Entrance to the centre is FREE! It's by the waterfront in the Old Town, close to the visitor centre. The art centre has vivid display of art - ceramic, clay, fabric, abstract, metal, papers, wood, newspaper, digital, exoskeleton, bottle caps, photography. I had a good time with many of the artists in their studio; sharing our experience in art and culture. Mark this place on your must do list. Thanks to the visitor centre for advising me to visit this place. The art pieces are pricy.
  • The Torpedo Factory never disappoints! Artists work and sell in the Factory. As a visitor, it’s not unusual to to run into the artist who created the piece you want to buy. And during warmer months, you frequently find street musicians or magicians performing behind the Factory on the dock. Really fun, entertaining place to visit!
