  • Great gallery. Me and my kids really enjoyed all exhibitions. Lovely place. Picasso, Braque, Rodin...
  • It was enjoyable but pieces I had enjoyed on my previous visit had been replaced with different artist's work which was not to my taste. However I'm sure it will be to many other's taste' s.
  • Not bad at all for free but with two floors closed, it is a long way to walk for 45 minutes of culture.
  • Great exhibitions in a great location. Well worth a visit. While we were there Tracy Emin's bed was being exhibited with a lecturer to analyse. Very slow service in the attached Museum cafe but plenty of other well priced eateries very close by.
  • Great experience with friendly and helpful staff. Would recommend a visit
