  • One of the best places to visit in the city. Ground floor focuses on contemporary art and the latest in the local arena. Top floors offer art pieces tested by time. A nice flow overall. There's also space for private/corporate events. Attentive team on the ground. Has a very good shop and cafe withing the master building. Very close to other attractions.
