A nice if limited collection of art and sculpture in this gallery. Apart from one rather fine work by Zoffany, the paintings are a bit dull, the sculpture, however, is varied and exciting.

We spent about 2hours at the place and could have stayed longer. It is a beautiful building with a nice variety of art, sculpture, social history. It's free entry and has a pleasant café as well. Not to be missed....
