    A great place to introduce my daughter (3yro) to art and creative minds. She loved all the statues and sculptures. The colors and fun way this place is put together makes you want to get a chair and hang out with a pencil and sketch book. Free to the public, with donation box, which is a bonus!

    Absolutely beautifully magical. I'm so happy to have visited and I left feeling so full and invigorated. So much creatively and truly lovely passion staff.

    This place just makes you feel happy. It's technically free to get in and runs off of donations. They are not open year round, but it is definitely worth the wait.

    Quirky and beautifully presented. At the time I was there they hadn't yet put the signage up following renovation but the presentation was fabulous and it is full of colour and made me smile. And, it's free with a recommended donation. Spent about 30 minutes there.

    Really cute art and sculpture gallery. Entry by donation. Short hours but worth looking around if you have the chance.
