  • Love this place. The gallery building itself is beautiful. They have a great selection of local and native art, as well as international pieces. And the best part is it's free for locals. Check it out!
  • While the collection of the museum might not be so impressive compared to its European counterparts, its state-of-art architectural design and the effort to make the gallery interesting deserves a 5-star rating. Plus it has a great cafe a free wifi.
  • Wonderful public art gallery with special galleries that require you to purchase tickets. Check the website for free gallery tour times; the guides are volunteer docents who love art and having people to talk to art with. Also check out the gift shop, if only for the cheeky shopping bags.
  • Building is historic with some nice modern features. Free to go to, with the occasional pay to see exhibition. Good art work on display
  • Beautifully restored historic building with some modern rap around architecture. Good variety of exhibits. Me, I like the experimental unusually ones.
