The £4m Jerwood art gallery in Hastings opens its doors tomorrow at 10am.
The building, on the seafront by the fishing fleet, houses a collection of paintings from artists such as Rose Wylie from Kent, L.S. Lowrie, and David Bomberg.
It's hoped the venue will help to revitalise the town though some people feel it's in the wrong place and too costly - £2 for locals and £7 for non-residents.
Time will tell if this gallery can exert the same effect on Hastings as the Turner Contemporary has on Margate in Kent.
