“small but worth a visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

We wandered in here on a whim when walking around Hamilton. It's not very big, but it's a nice break from the heat and sun. The woman at the desk was very nice.

“Easy to find in Hamilton and open to visitors, often with special events.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Not to be missed. Watch for special events and showings of Bermudian artists and of course special collections of historical Bermuda paintings. Wonderful way to learn about the fine arts of the Island.

“New Exhibit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

We were treated to the opening day of the new exhibit! The art work is truly fascinating, ultra contempary and exciting. The docents were training for the new show the day we were there and we were treated to talks by two of the artists. Fantastic experience.
