“Take a couple of hours to view, of at all possible”
Reviewed 27 September 2013

The exhibitions in this beautiful building are well worth a visit. Situated near the bus station and about five minutes from the ferries, it is easily accessible.
As well as other exhibitions, two exhibitions particularly impressed me; the exhibition in partnership with the Alexis Foundation, founded in memory of a photo journalist who died in the Lockerbie bombing, is particularly moving. It covers many relevant social issues, including hunger, domestic violence, child brides, adopting children from other countries and ethnic divisions.
The other exhibition is called Father Portraits which show fathers and their children. The viewer is left to interpret the meaning of the pictures, with hints given in the items shown in the background.
We spent about an hour viewing these and other very interesting exhibitions, I only wish we had gone earlier in the day and had spent more time there.
