  • Love this gallery, lots of diffrent exhibit spaces that are always changing. Lovely exhibit opening parties as well, the curators definitely know what they are doing.
  • Really nice gallery, wonderful various collections. The gallery could really benefit from a coffee shop, perhaps backing into their patio.
  • The Exhibition this weekend was excellent! The emphasis this time is on Asian works. Japanese, Chinese, Korean, India, Thailand... you get the picture. As well as the permanent exhibit, always worth a walk-through.
  • It has a very nice variety of exhibitions. The museum doesn't feel so big but they have an incredible use of the space where it doesn't feel exhausting and yet you leave like you saw a huge museum. All while learning a lot too!
  • A good place to spend half a day looking at a well curated collection of interesting pieces.
