After visiting the museum, don't forget to take a stroll into the artist residential / work area. You will find many artists working on their next masterpieces. I bought a nice painting, which they packed very nicely for flight travel. It arrived without a scratch.

This Art Gallery is located close to the VGP Theme Park along the ECR. It displays paintings of various themes. The art gallery is well maintained. It is not usually crowded as it is away from the center of the city.
