It’s an incredible building with so much history! I would 10/10 recommend doing one of the free tours as it gives you so much history and knowledge of the building itself! So many cool exhibitions!

Hi They are very different places. I liked the gallery, the art was fabulous and the views from the cafe/balcony on the top floor were fabulous. If you like history, you should go to the museum Cheers Jo
