Quite a surprise to find such a good fine arts museum. Well worth a visit, and close to the Opera House.
I loved the second part of the gallery with the painting and carvings made from different materials. It was unique and the gallery was in an attractive building. The first part didn't really interest me, more contemporary. Is it worth a visit?.... Yes, but not if time is limited.
