  • Beautiful permanent and rotating collections. There is a wide variety of art to see, so anyone can find something that interests them. The staff is friendly and the place is very clean and well maintained. The garden is a pretty spot to spend some time, too.
  • Great exhibitions which are really varied so something for everyone, and something new/different for everyone. Loved the mirror room. A special thank you to all the staff, ESPECIALLY Richard the volunteer at the front door who was so pleasant and took his time to greet and be interested in every customer. A* service I hope he receives my thanks and he receives positive feedback and a thumbs up!
