The inside of the museum is a mixture of interconnecting spaces with a wide variety of art and sculpture. Connected out side is a cafe and garden area with more sculpture. Well worth a visit.

Went for the 60 year celebrations at the art gallery. Really lovely space featuring local artists and also pieces from other parts of the world. Space is utilized creatively and offers and nice viewing experience. The celebrations were also well-organized with food and drinks.
