When we were there, there were some nice exhibits but the experience cannot help being a disappointment to anyone who knows the Sarjeant Gallery's normal home - which is an architectural gem with a wonderful collection.

Thoughtfully put together with a story line linking the exhibits. Friendly staff. Shame the original building was undergoing earthquake strengthening so the exhibit was in temporary premises.
