“History and art”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

I particularly liked the old court building and the display there. I found it interesting to walk around the old building and imagine it in its former use.

I also liked the the way the art was placed to compare and contrast. I particularly liked one pairing of the Solent on a typical grey day and of Fremantle on a sunny day. I have visited both locations and both pieces were true to life and for me thought provoking.

“gold coin donation”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

I think this is a great place to be able to enter for a gold coin donation. It's not a place i go in all the time so can't say how often displays are changed. They do have some exhibits that you play entry for like the dali and beyond exhibition my husband and I went to see, i was quite disappointed with that, not worth the money. the cafe on the ground floor is nice and the shop has some interesting things.

“Little treasures”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

I enjoyed the little cafe here -- well worth the stop - I always enjoy the exhibitions and the gift shop - so central and adjacent to the museum.
