  • 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.
  • Splendid local art gallery. The Burne-Jones Room is especially worth your time.
  • Very disappointing. Good Art Deco building & excellent, but small, display area. According to Public Catalogue Foundation there are 3,500 works of art. On display probably 100 - 150. Described by the curator as "arguably housing the best collection of fine art south of London". The best work was not on display. I was told that I could see what was in store but would have to pay to do so! Few Camden Town Group works. No, or very few, Graham Sutherland (they own 10), no John Piper, no Surrealists, no Impressionists etc. The shop was very poor & lacking in stock. No wonder it was empty. The is Public Art, for goodness sake, owned by the public.
  • It's so important to the community that we fund the arts. Brilliant place. Only thing that infuriates me is that it's closed between Christmas and New Years. Very annoying. It's not free, if you live in Southampton and pay council tax - so I'm allowed to complain.
  • Massive live sound here. Saw of mice and men rock this stage, was anabsolute party!
