    The Barber Institute has managed to build up a small but excellent collection of paintings and sculptures. It has specialised in pre-twentieth century works so don't expect anything really modern. I was surprised by the number of small scale works by international masters. Turner, Gaugan, Matisse and a surprising number of drawings which were later converted on the masters paintings which can be seen in the Internationl Galleries around the world.

    Quirky art gallery in a beautiful 1930s building, some real gems from 15th Century to impressionists. They also have some very good temporary exhibitions.
