  • Is a very respectable Museum located near the Park on the waterfront. Exhibits are interested in when I went, but not the rooftop to enjoy views of the harbour. If I was to go to Seaside Park and Pavilion Glover Glover Pavilion close, so if you are interested in art, likes what?

  • I love the admission-free rooftop garden. It is a nice and peaceful place to enjoy the sunshine and have good views of the harbour.  more »
  • Did not pay to see the gallery, but no charge to go up on the roof and walk around see artwork scattered throughout the area. The view of the harbour and port is amazing from the top.Less than an hour...  more »

  • Don't miss the roof garden when you finish the visit before you leave, it's among one of the greatest view of the honour
  • Good modern local art and a temporary exibit of local photo artists who where present to answer questions
  • We walked up to the rooftop garden (free) and got the lift down into the museum. There was a free music performance that we got to watch as well!
  • Good correction of Spanish art in the permanent collection.

Look around the main train station for the greatest number of options, with high-rise blocks containing hotels both basic and luxury. Following the train line both north and south of this central area, guesthouses and hostels crowd around the stations, and clusters of modern hotels mark out popular commercial districts.
