This is a free gallery to view various works of art in various mediums. The exhibits were pleasant and quiet for detail viewing. They are located on several floors and are access by both a lift or stairs.

A good mix of modern art works, photography by a leading New York photographer and themed rooms that brought together old and modern art plus classics like stained glass. Do try the café for lunch.
