New exhibits, new travelling collections, new parts of the building all blend together with the historical Victorian centrepiece. I always enjoy time here.

I loved they way they chose to display their collection (I think it was the one their standard exhibit). Unusual and beautiful, allows your eye to roam around paintings for different genres.
