Some of the recent reviews we have received stated the following:

'Well worth a visit! Free and with lots of different galleries. Modern art, a room of old masters, some social history exhibits and an interesting take on displaying natural history items.' 

'Just wow! We were impressed by the exhibits and knowledge/enthusiasm of staff - we never realised there was so much going on here!' 

'Classic alongside contemporary! You may have just stepped outside the cathedral, to be welcomed by a modern art gallery and museum. Don't hesitate. This is a wonderful place to visit. Entry is free. The galleries are at different levels to your left. What nothing prepares you for is the stark contrast between the Old Masters and the contemporary exhibits. We took our time examining and reading about the exhibits. Importantly, the artist information was often accompanied by good detail, outlining the artistic technique used. Don't expect each exhibit to be understood. There are several challenging pieces. Several galleries give opportunity for children to dress up; boxes of clothes to be found.'
