The gallery is is a purpose built building some distance from the old city; the easiest way of getting there is by taxi. A wide range of exhibits for all tastes with a good cafe.

We could have spent far more time at this compact art gallery. We are in our 50's, and visited with two adult children, first taking in the temporary Ai Wei Wei exhibit, which was very impressive. We only had about minutes for the permanent collection,...More
