Beautiful artwork of local artist and children and their perception of Bermuda. You can choose to go to the either gallery(paid or free admission). Me and my sister went to the free admissions center. It was great plus it was really hot out and the gallery was an ice box! It was a perfect relief.

Support local art and artists! Visit the gallery and enjoy some quiet time away from the tourist areas of Hamilton. There are some interesting works here, and two different areas to visit. Clean bathrooms also available!

The gallery is well worth a visit. One side gives the Bermudans the opportunity to display their own best efforts - and there were some excellent presentations when we visited. The other side has a good selection of professional art from across the spectrum that will challenge your taste.

A must see for art lovers. My friend and I have been going to Bermuda for years now and just last year visited the Gallery. This is now at the top of our "must see" every year.

A great place to connect with Bermuda. Displays are wonderful, the art is enjoyable and just a place to unwind and get lost in the moment.
