  • Small but some great portraits. Some political and funny, some beautiful, some highly-skilled, some just plain weird. It's free, the staff are nice, pop your head in!
  • Free! Impressive collection of portrait paintings... not very large but i felt the quality of exhibits made up for it. Celebrates local nz artists past and present. A must see for artists and art students. I only spent 20-30mins here.
  • Free museum. Interesting work. Kind staff
  • Enjoyed the political satire pictures
  • Interesting portraits and a quick, fun place to visit.
