Fodor's Review

A handsome conversion of Albert Dock warehouses by the late James Stirling, one of Britain's leading 20th-century architects, hosts an offshoot of the London-based art galleries of the same name. There is no permanent collection; challenging exhibitions of modern art change every couple of months. A free introductory tour begins daily at 2:40. There's an excellent shop, a children's play area, and a dockside café-restaurant.
