  • Contemporary gallery with several exhibitions on simultaneously. Installations, moving image and interactive exhibitions. A good place to get your art fix. Small cafe within gallery as well. Free entry. A must for art lovers.
  • Nice exhibitions. Lovely building. Free entry. Really nice little cafe restaurant with an outside area.(pricey though but it is just my point of view) Also there is a cute gift shop.
