  • This place deserves to be better known. Why is it not shouting about its fantastic collection of modern art? Items from permanent collection always on display and interesting temporary exhibitions. The well written labels give great insight into the character of Margaret Tait who donated her collection as the starting point. Worth travelling a long way to visit.
  • Modern and Interesting exhibits. Looked a little sparse, perhaps waiting for more exhibit s to arrive.
  • Simply fantastic. A spacious gallery over 3 floors in a wonderfully designed space overlooking the harbour. The collection of art includes artists of national significance such as Hepworth and Nicholson as well as artists with links to Orkney such as Cursiter and Wishart. Lovely reference space to browse art books on the top floor.
  • A great free gallery with beautiful views showcasing top artists
  • Excellent for all. Even kids.
