This is a very nicely designed buiding housing some exquisite pieces ranging from the 1970's to early 2000. It has some outside space giving views over the water also. Well worth the visit

All displayed in this wonderful building, this is a fabulous collection & the highlight of our visit to the island. Very disappointing not being allowed to take photographs though.
