A feast for the senses, the gallery is more than a three level haven of fine art in an historic 19th century mansion. With its decadent retail areas, Mediterranean restaurant, relaxing Altar bar and lounge, restored chapel, nuns museum, penthouse apartment...

Gorgeous place, inside and out, with a very cute little café! There was some cool art, a small museum and a bell tower. Entrance fee was only $5, definitely worth it !

First of all we weren’t able to fully explore the gardens because of the weather, however I would say that this would have been a fantastic thing to do going by what we could see. Perhaps my three star rating was due to a wait...More

Worth the admission to see the eclectic collection of art on display and for sale. Added bonus is the setting and the historical aspect of the building and grounds which are immaculately maintained.

Spent 2 visits exploring this magnificent piece of Victorian history. The building renovations are just fantastic as is the museum. Its small but well worth the effort. The exhibition rooms would do any State galleries credit. The displays and exhibits were so professionally done. This...More

This was a convent and a boarding school. The chapel, a nun’s cell, the infirmary and what the guide calls the music room but what former boarders call the dungeon can still be seen. Then in addition, art works for display. There is also a...More
