Newest Review: ... summer Saturday, and the gallery was pleasantly busy but not at all crowded. There were no queues and none of the jostling that I sometimes experience in London galleries. The large entrance lobby is in the modern wing; walking in there is an immediate feel of light and space, with huge windows providing natural light and white walls and ceilings giving a Mediterranean feel. There were no ... more

The Pallant House Gallery proudly proclaims itself to be "the home of Modern Art in the South", but I have admit that I only visited very recently. The reason for my visit was to see the very well reviewed touring exhibition of the work of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. This was the only UK showing of this exhibition, bringing together the work of the passionate Mexican couple and I would have travelled a long way to see it.

For West Sussex students admission is free, as for children, but other students and adults admission can be between £2 and £5 depending on the exhibition. I am Read the complete review
