  • I've enjoyed many visits here, there is always something new and interesting, the gallery have a lovely collection of Turner watercolours. Children are also catered for, there is plenty to keep children occupied and interested. There is also a tea room where you can buy tea and cakes, sandwiches et cetera.
  • I loved this art gallery. Starting from the beautiful building's architecture, the exhibitions, the shop and the cafĂ©. Beautiful secret place in Newcastle that is a must. I still cannot believe that is free!
  • We went for the Alice in Wonderland exhibition. Loved it, and staff was so helpful and nice! Happy to tell you fun info, let us take pictures, try on costumes, so great. They go out if their way and beyond to make a full experience for their visitors
  • A bit disappointing. Large areas taken up with paying exhibition, cafe, children's activity zones (no problem with last!). Four galleries: watercolour (poor), 18/19th century (ok), 20th century/abstract (ok), North-East focused gallery (not bad). Best bit: light and sound cubicle bringing a John Martin painting to life. Toilets are clean, old-school and (importantly) open to anyone.
  • I do like this gallery but I was quite dissatisfied with the Alice in wonderland exhibition, maybe because I had the idea there would be art works based on r his theme, and it was mostly about the history of the story, writer and girl it was based on, which was very interesting also, the rest of the building is fantastic and free! But after a couple of visits there's no point going back as it's quite small
