  • Eerie, insightful and informative. The Lock-up gives the tourist a window-seat into the criminal justice system of Australia. Would recommend to anyone travelling through Newcastle!
  • Nice art. Very open and clean.
  • Awesome use of the old Newcastle lock up as a contemporary art venue - check public programs to make the most of your visit as always great talks and local community perspectives on art
  • Grabbed a quick coffee, looks to be a good place but I was only there for a few minutes. Would like to try it again some day I am back in Newcastle.
  • Mesmerizing pieces of art!
