For a very small country, this is a charming and wonderful experience. Full of Bahamian art and such a lot of talent.
When we visited in March 2014, the second story was closed for setup of a new exhibit so we think that's why we were only charged $3 admission. Worth the stop when exploring Nassau on foot though it is a few blocks from central downtown.
