A gallery with lots of promise. Enjoyed the design of the building, its settings in a garden that over time will become very attractive. Artwork is of high quality contemporary. Very worth a visit. No cafe or refreshments. Guides helpful but no English commentary.

Visited here one morning and it was one of the best collates exhibitions I’ve ever seen. The attention to detail was amazing and the exhibition inside was just as good as the outdoor exhibition. The cafe is also lovely
