  • History combined with art made this a really interesting place to visit. Three preserved buildings next to each other. A post office , court house and goal. Two are galleries and the post office...

  • Inspired place to have a small art gallery and there are some thought provoking exhibits and a gift shop. Worth a peep.

  • We saw an interesting exhibition here. It’s free and the location of the old police station makes the place historically interesting as a bonus.
  • ✨ We visited to see the Argo Pacifico, the current installation & it was amazing! Every room of the Lock-up has been transformed into a room of a cruise ship for your to enjoy, right here in Newy! And it's free!
