Very interesting museum of local Bahamas art and history. I especially liked the exhibit detailing the dispute with Cuba over fishing rights and the attack on a Bahamian ship by Cuban Migs. The attack happened in the 80's and I don't recall any mention of it in the news.

A delightful collection of local fine art work. It depicts the beauty of the islands and the love of the people who inhabit them.

The building is as stunning as the art work. It was apparent that the arts are fluorishing in the Bahamas!

Beautiful Art and we learned about Cuba attacking the Bahamian Navy! Lovely old House that was turned into the gallery.
