Enjoyed our stop at the museum a pleasant change from the touristy streets near the cruiseship docks, but just a couple blocks up from the waterfront. The building is a beautiful old house and the collection is an array of local art.

Just walking through Nassau and we stumbled upon the art gallery. As a art lover, I had to go in. It has a good collection.

This is well worth seeing if you're making your way through this CharlesTown neighbourhood. You get an appreciation for the local artists and the country's history. The Gallery is across the street from John Watling's Distillery, which also has some interesting history and is a great reward for visiting an art museum on the island. Good one two punch. Enjoy...

What an amazing gallery. We walked up after visiting the Pirate Museum with our two daughters, 6 and 12, and were so glad we did. When we visited the whole gallery was dedicated to R Brent Malone and the show was so well curated. It's a great gallery and worth taking the time to visit.

Enjoyed seeing the Bahamian art and its various forms. Felt that the gallery lacked any representation from photography and from sculpture. In a beautifully restored old home. Worth the visit.

OK. We typically only go through Nassau going to and coming from one of the Family Out Islands. So we finally decided to spend four days in Nassau and hit some of the 'touristy' highlights, some of the historical highlights, some of the natural highlights, and finally some of the cultural highlights. Now for those of you for which art... More

We enjoyed spending an hour with many paintings of the featured Bahamian artist. The depictions of island life and the Junkanoo festival were beautiful. The building and grounds are lovely.

We visited here 3 years ago and were so impressed we came back. They had a different exhibition this time, a local artist who was very talented. We did look in the gift shop for prints to take home as souvener but unfortunately they didnt have any
