    Definitely worth a visit if you're nearby, and entry is free. It's quite a small gallery and museum, and doesn't take long to fully tour, but for its size, I thoroughly enjoyed my visit. At time of writing, the museum had a musical instrument exhibition, consisting of lots of large photos of musical instruments played by iconic Australian acts, with an accompanying page of associated facts and history. Interesting and nostalgic.

    Nice quiet gallery in the middle of the hustle & bustle on the streets of Manly. Like the work in the gallery, transports you to a different dimension.

    Went here for an amazing exhibit, blending science and art with the focus being ku-ring-gai national park. It was all free and very interesting, interactive and informative.

    Great local art gallery featuring work from local artists and even students from Northern Sydney.

    Alen was amazing. I had a silk scarf framed and Alen made suggested improvements and the outcome is perfect. Highly recommend!
