Wonderful art museum for a not so big building. Allow time as there's lots to see. Strong on new shows and always beautifully installed.

Anyone interested in the modern art scene and especially photography will enjoy the great layout and space of the newly renovated museum. Interactive photo exhibits are up to date and exciting! the Cafe 5 is a lovely place to dine especially in fine weather at the outdoor garden.

Totally manageable collection - eclectic, surprising and enjoyable. The building is lovely too. Shop worth a browse- expensive but some nice souvenirs.

They have a new wing which is very large and provides a lot of new party space and display space. Unfortunately the design is not attractive. Come here for a special expo that you want to see. IMHO the permanent collection is forgettable, too full of pieces that are not well-made.
