  • Lovely outside area. Could be great if they had a few toys/playground for children considering that most of the people going there are mums with bubs. It's a great space inside too but the expositions need improvement. I always find them a bit disappointing. There's a lovely cafe.
  • Enjoy visiting this facility the art gallery, the cafe and the shop that is also like walking in a gallery. The building itself is amazing. Very relaxing and parking off the street near the entrance is convenient. I have done some of the art courses and taken my child there during school holidays when young and they all have been great.
