  • This is a very relaxing place to visit. Free admission. Shame that some of the rooms were closed due to exhibition being set up. Still some nice art to browse. Would like to have seen more. Would recommend.
  • They frequently update their exhibitions and display a wide variety of styles often including local artists' work. It's free to visit although there is a box to leave donations towards upkeep. The gallery also run a lot of classes and activities for all ages throughout the year.
  • A lovely quiet gallery that regularly has special exhibitions. You can easily spend 40 or a couple of hours.
  • If you like art, it's all good. If you don't like art why are you going to an art gallery?
  • I visited the exhibition on Romanticism in Britain here. Which, I thought, was of excellent quality and was very enjoyable. Although it is not in the same league as larger London musea it is certainly worth visiting if you are in the Southampton area. Entrance is free, though opening times are a bit odd, especially as the museum is closed on Sundays! So be careful to look the opening times.
