I haw only been inside once, when they were holding Leonardo Da Vinci exhibition. It is professionally run. Recently I have only been outside and is disappointing, how it looks. The garden needs serious attention. there is also free WiFi available.

A once wonderful little gallery that has gone to ruin. They had quite a good collection but have lost a lot due to theft. The completely disinterested staff also drag the tone down.
