  • Fantastic museum. This might be the best art museum I've ever been to! So much fun, so well maintained. I recommend this place enough. You can spend a good few hours here. There's something for everyone. I was surprised just ow big this open museum is. Very good value for money.
  • Excellent place to view all the creative exhibits. Good to spent half a day there. Lots of open space. Nice gallery with lots of exhibit for those loves art. There is also some play exhibits for kids to climb and play. Wonderful concepts.
