The Sunday Post (Newcastle) - - NEWS -

John Glassey, 30

The feel­ing when you come in the door is one of warmth and home­li­ness. You could sit for hours just re­lax­ing – and that is be­fore you even visit the ex­hi­bi­tions.

ewelina Dep­tula, 37

I fell in love with the Scot­tish De­sign ex­hi­bi­tion. You can touch and feel. It is good for kids to see – even sim­ple things like how wellies are de­signed.

stella Chalmers, 85

It is hard to pick one thing as every­thing I have seen so far has been fan­tas­tic. Even the stairs! The Mack­in­tosh tea rooms were re­ally beau­ti­ful.

Brian mCleoD, 60

I am glad to see it all com­ing to­gether and the buzz that has been cre­ated. All very in­ter­est­ing and I look for­ward to the fur­ther ex­hi­bi­tions as they come along.

marie wat­son, 42

There are so many nooks and cran­nies to get lost in. I hadn’t re­alised how much like a boat the build­ing re­sem­bled un­til we stood out­side look­ing at it.

elaine Creamer, 49, eD­in­BurGh

Amaz­ing. Such a great thing for Dundee and Scot­land. I have re­ally en­joyed it - all the dif­fer­ent fash­ion cos­tumes and the tiara re­ally stands out.

rana ta­BanCa, 55

It’s a great land­mark for the city. I love the lit­tle win­dows where you can see the sea. It is go­ing to be a so­cial and cul­tural place for the whole world to meet.

mar­Cus wylie, 42

The place is buzzing. It’s great to see it filled with peo­ple chat­ting and kids play­ing. We could go out on the bal­cony and see across the wa­ter to our house.
