Just wanted to warn potential visitors that I saw a closed for repairs sign yesterday (aug 6th, 2018), if you really want to visit I recommend calling in advance (because you're probably not going to have any phone reception anywhere around).

Here for five days. The gallery was closed the entire time. Very disappointing as it looked like it had beautiful pieces inside.

Has a variety of high end art as well as smaller items in the "souvenir" category. Apparently undergoing an ownership change, definitely feels dated/in need of a refurb. But not a bad spot to wander and check out for 20 minutes.
