  • Saw the art express illustrating yr 12 work. Great facility and easy location. Parking is always an issue around the area.
  • This is a hidden gem. Small gallery of well curated exceptional art. Better than some galleries in major cities. A great place to escape the sun for a hour and well worth a visit
  • 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.
  • Small but well-organized collections. Free admission.
  • Cute little museum. No charge to get in.
