Thought we were going to see old Cornish masters but it was all modern and seemed to be a competition some of which was signed as being disturbing so take note. Shame really but maybe those are out on another occasion

The staff are super friendly and the venue prides itself on being accessible to all, including wheelchair users, unlike many Falmouth venues (there is a lift to the gallery from street level). The exhibitions are always of a high standard, we saw the Winifred Nicholson...More

Quite an impressive collection for such a small gallery. Particularly like the interactive exhibits. Helpful staff.

There’s always a warm welcome at this small art gallery. Exhibitions change regularly. The gallery has its own collection of pictures as well as occasionally having touring exhibitions. There’s a lift for easy access and a little shop of very individual gifts and lovely cards.

Small friendly gallery with a wide remit of the arts from Gilbert and George to Ben Nicholson, Alfred Munnings and Banksy. Friendly staff to inform and help you with the exhibits, and a range of topics for all tastes, from the traditional to the psychedelic.

It's a small gallery, but they have some lovely pieces--and it's free. It's worthwhile stopping in even for a few minutes (but you'll probably wind up spending more time there).
