  • Great gallery. Ive seen some exhibitions free and some paid for - so check with staff at reception. Some nice places to sit and relax inside. Gallery isnt that large but they seem to showcase good local/international artists. Cafe and shop inside. Cloakroom available for large backpacks etc. Id recommend seeing here.
  • coolest little gallery in the coolest little capital, year round open with different exhibitions all free of charge, great place to push prams and bring little ones to. great cafe on the ground floor too.
  • It's a fantastic contemporary gallery with regularly changing exhibitions, it's free, has a wonderful cafe next door and is a step away from Wellington's wonderful waterfront
  • Great gallery to visit. The staff are always super helpful and know a lot about the installations.
  • Really nice and tiny art place. Very child friendly with workshops for the children to learn how to make paper brooches. I really enjoyed the experience!
