We really enjoyed our visit, discovering creatively displayed art in a special exhibition and also finding time to see the collection of Norwegian art and especially the Frida Hansen weavings. Children seemed to be very well catered for.

I came here with my teenage children after seeing reviews on TripAdvisor. The gallery was delightful with art both modern and classical. There was a lovely little shop and coffee area too. Definitely worth a visit.

Good contemporary exhibition along with new mounting of the collection of mainly older art, paintings from the area seem to be the main focus.
