  • What a treat! Brought my elderly mother here to enjoy the museum today, was pleasantly surprised to have them offer her a wheel chair so she could enjoy the art in it's entirety. Staff were helpful and friendly. 5 star!
  • The art gallery is very creatively decorated. I enjoyed the large pieces because it was almost like looking at a landscape. Their was a very good amount of art. I will definitely go again!
