    This is a big building in the middle of Nottingham. We saw 4 big galleries, each with one exhibit, and one with a film showing. I think the space could have been used better. Lots of staff present.  more »

    Love having this on my doorstep. Some exhibitions can be a little strange and not everyones cup of tea so its worth checking their listings but overall I love it . Plus the cafe is great to drop into ...  more »

  • Exhibitions change fairly frequently so this isn't a rating of what's on. It's free to enter and donations can be make to support the contemporary exhibitions. Good presentation spaces. Can be fun to explore and then enjoy the cafe and bar downstairs. There are workshops for young kids which will relate to something in the exhibition. Fun for adults as well. Not far from the station and worth a visit.
  • Contemporary art for free in a smart modern building. Exhibitions vary throughout the year. Sometimes I don"t really understand what they are about but that makes things a bit more interesting. Saw a Screaming Pope by Francis Bacon there last year, not to be confused with a screaming Pope Francis and bacon.
  • Two rooms with minuscule exhibitions and a shop, but the building itself is interesting. It's all free so if you're a fan of brutalism and in the area you might want to give it a go
  • So glad I found a contemporary gallery of this quality outside of London. My new favourite place for inspiration.
  • Offers a really rich programme of (free) exhibitions all year round. The current show (The Place is Here) is well worth a visit. Oh, and the bar and gift shop are quite nice too...
