“A small but great gallery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

FREE. My wife and I enjoyed the current show with an internationsl photojournalism exhibit - it was very moving. Not sure when it ends and there was also a local documentary showing the growing problems that ordinary Bermudans face - an eye opener!

“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.
