The gallery collects, documents and promotes a national collection of art for the Bahamian people and international audiences.

I must say I was pleasantly surprised by the building itself and the grounds. I visited on a Tuesday around 11 am. Note that the gallery is closed on Monday. International visitors pay $10 for admission and you pay this in the small gift shop located on the ground floor. The grounds were quite lovely with interesting sculptural pieces positioned... More

We enjoyed the art though more than one artist would have been nice.You tour it yourself and the house and grounds are beautiful.They are currently under repairs but does not detract from the experience.

We went to the National Art Gallery on a rainy day during our stay in Nassau. There was a temporary exhibit featuring the artwork of R Brent Malone, which gave an amazing look into Bahamian life and culture. Would definitely recommend a visit!

We spent a rainy afternoon going through this exhibit. The museum itself is located in an historic villa that has been refurbished to house the museum. The Bahamian art displayed was very interesting. I would recommend this to anyone to take a couple of hours and see the exhibits.

The art gallery was a hidden jewel - amazing works of art in a building that is also a work of art. Lovely to relax and look at the wonderful work of local artists.
