  • I was lucky to join on the evening of live dance performances but would enjoy regardless. However expositions change so can't speak for future stuff. Lovely shop
  • The flight perspective exhibition is great and worth a look. Really like the 30s artwork. The top floor and first floor exhibitions not so much and I'd skip. A very nice respite from the south beach thumping tunes bar thing.
