Loved this little Art Gallery. Friendly and intimate it has some really good art on display and it's free! Our Grandson loved it as well, the automatons and the table where he could play whilst we looked round. This would make any child enthusiastic about art. If only more Art Galleries were so welcoming and well presented. The staff deserve... More

The gallery had a strong emphasis on maritime subjects, scenes and people. It was well laid out and informative with some excellent pictures by well-known artists. It's small enough to enable one to look thoroughly at all the exhibits without fatigue.

This place was cute and free so we decided to spend some time in here as we were passing by. They have about 4 rooms of different kinds of artwork and they are pretty interesting. They also have a little gift shop and some of there artwork are for sale. They also offer free wifi.

The gallery is located in the centre of town on The Moor and is around a 15-20 minute walk from Falmouth Town railway station. The building which houses the gallery also contains the town's library. Exhibiting at the time of our visit was the work of locally based artists from the Royal Academy, namely Charles Napier Hemy and Henry Scott... More

This art gallery has several good quality paintings of the sea and coast off Falmouth. Apparently, the interplay of the light, clouds, sea and shore is rather unique to Falmouth. It only has a few rooms and is a good place to pop in on a rainy day. A rather well stocked art book and gift shop is also on... More

....and as it wasn't raining I think that we might have made better use of our time. I think I was looking for something that would give me a flavour of Cornwall, and I didn't really get it. There were some nice painting but I didn't find it inspirational as much as the Penlee gallery in Penzance did. You could... More

It seems there are as many art galleries in the West Country as there are charity shops on my high street and after a while you just zone out .... Of the blue yellow watercolours depicting boat and sea scapes. So with that mindset when we wandered into Falmouth we initially dismissed the art gallery - but the need for... More
