  • We visit the art gallery every few years to see what's on display. If you're an art nerd (I mean that with respect, like if art is really your thing) I'm sure you'd enjoy it. If you're like me, and like art, but not if you've got to read the card beside something in order to understand why it should be interesting or appealing, then it may not knock your socks off. We saw the 80s display, which was ok, but didn't overly move me. Personally, I'd love to see some more installation art and/or kinetic art.
  • This is a nice art gallery set in an attractive building. They make excellent use of their space and often times host novel experiences which keep you coming back. My favourite experience was watching a close up opera in the foyer. The rooftop musice series set in the sculpture garden are also a unique experience.
