The pieces outside the museum are , in my opinion more fun and interesting than the permanent exhibit inside, however the exhibits inside are really good.

we were inspired to go to this museum by the lovely sculptures on the promenade. We are not particularly knowledgeable about art and were a little worried the sculptures would be too high brow for us. A needless worry The displays just blew us away....More

As you walk along the promenade you can see fabulous sculptures both on the promenade and on the hilly mound which runs alongside the promenade. The museum is up behind this mound. It is not very well signposted.

An excellent exhibition space near the beach. A mixture of permanent and temporary exhibits that show real breadth in sculpture. A focus on the human form for the permanent exhibition. There is a small cafe, and a good shop, too.

This is a very nice spot by the see that can bring new feelings to your beach walk. Plus close to this museum there is a lighthouse so if you like lighthouses as much as I do - I highly recommend to go there :)
