The gallery is interesting if you're into that kind of thing and the gift shop sells some quirky stuff - but you have to go up in the lift to the viewing platform. It offers amazing views across the city. You can see the bridges,...More

We popped in to love at the art exhibitions unaware of the viewing gallery on the upper floor. The views across the city are amazing and easily accessibly for all.

Spent a nice morning going around exhibits with my other half. Wish there had been more explanation for some of the exhibits but recognise this may be the artist's decision and not the building! Stunning view from level 5.
