Come along and discover the story for yourself.

Discover their history through scrapbooks, letters and visual clues. Or you can sit on Grandma's comfy couch and read the story for yourself.

With over 50 paintings, 30 sculptures, a flurry of white mice, set amongst over 20 pieces of furniture there will be plenty to see. It is very multi-layred with something for everyone.
