A free art gallery in the old Oozells Street School. Tends towards modern exhibits. Good cafe (though it seems to change hands a lot).

Great place to visit if you have 1-2 hours available. It's not a big place but the quality of the works seems to be good and the staff are supper friendly and helpful. TIP: check what's on before you go.
