“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Although it is a small gallery, it is definitely worth visiting. It provides a very local perspective and this is always interesting. What you are there, be sure to visit the artist coop across the hall on the same floor. Everything is locally produced and is for sale..

“Bermuda National Gallery at the City Hall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

The location of the Gallery is perfect, next to the bus station on Church street and close to Front street for great shopping. The exhibitions are changed regularly and are always interesting.

“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.
