  • The artwork in the National Art Gallery of the Bahamas is both beautiful and emotional. I especially loved the paintings of the children. The colorful murals that surround this beautiful building...  more »
  • This small, but interesting museum its well worth a visit. Just a two or three block walk from Bay Street, the art is very good and the building is welcoming. The "Refuge" exhibit is superb.  more »
  • Absolutely AMAZING collection, building, staff, etc. There were almost no others there during my visit. I highly recommend, was not touristy (besides being a museum of course) and we gained a much better understanding of Bahamian art and culture as well as the art and culture of the world. Very well curated exhibits ranging in medium and style, fantastic! Also, free WiFi, air conditioning, bathrooms, and a great gift shop!
  • Wonderful collection of art, and everyone we met was happy to help us or answer questions!
