Wonderful little gallery, not far from Highbury tube. Don't go on "Match"days. Go hungry, as there's an excellent little restaurant.

This is a gem of a gallery with a fascinating programme of exhibitions. The permanent collection is good but it is the individual exhibitions that are so interesting. Make sure you visit the lively cafe as well.

Wonderful gallery with unique collection of Italian Futurist art. However the cafe is vastly overpriced...£2.90 for a lukewarm small cup of cappocino...snack before you visit!

This is the only Collection/Museum completely devoted to the Italian Futurism. The main protagonists are all well represented. It is definitly a must-visit place if you are fond of art.
