On a recent visit to their Christmas farye we toured the galleries and really enjoyed the diversity of mediums used throughout. Not only inside but several sculptures outside in the surrounding gardens. Don't forget to check out the resident artist as well.

Expensive, and not a lot to see or do. Sometimes they have visiting artist of varying skills who are excellent, but otherwise little else to do.

This museum is one of my favourite places to visit and I often take family and friends here. There is always something new to see including special exhibitions and artists in residence. I always come away feeling inspired. Last visited to see the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Exhibition. Oh and the café sells lovely cakes...

Lovely place for a visit, went to view the Wildife Photographer of the Year Exhibition which was really good, some amazing pictures. There is also a cafe and sculptures to look at outsider (weather permitting). They have lots of different exhibitions throughout the year and have a resident artist. If you like wildlife a good place to visit.
