  • Showcases some amazing Art. Local artists and history at display as well as some ever changing exhibitions coming around. Free entry. Must visit.
  • Fantastic attraction, really accessible and enjoyable
  • The whole family had a blast! And it's free!
  • Loads of interactive science for all ages (but mainly kids) at Invermay site
