It is not very big, and it is an old theater, the exhibitions are of very high standard, sorry to hear the plans about closing, because the building is so nice, and rather special

The exhibition was great! Amazing black and white photos on the ground floor and coloured ones on the first. Don't miss the adjoint gallery.
