Review highlights:

This museum is dedicated to Bahamian artists and, if nothing else, it gave a wonderful insight into the people of the Bahamas. The works in the permanent collection cover a broad range of Bahamian history and what is especially striking are the contemporary takes on Bahamian life. There is tremendous quality in the works, as one would expect in any National museum, but the materials and the voice that comes from the works are truly representative of this country and their people. I was especially taken with the contemporary works and the movement to counter how the Bahamas is portrayed in the travel brochures. Very effective in its telling. The current exhibition is the Ace of Spades, a tribute to one of the Junkanoo leaders. The installation was wonderfully creative and told an important story in the social and cultural life of Bahamians. I was so impressed with the museum that I will return upon my next visit to Nassau. May 2014

Old world Nassau, this building was refurbished and transformed into a masterpiece. It is filled with art work from very talented artists. Everyone art lover or visitor looking for attractions should visit this gallery.

This is a real gem of a museum! Although small, it's housed in a beautiful old house that has four galleries of artwork. I believe two were temporary exhibits featuring a variety of recent multi-media works by local artists, while the other two galleries were the permanent exhibition. Although small, the works are of very good quality and explore and express a lot about the Bahamian culture and experience. Really enjoyed our visit here. -December 2014

This is a wonderful start to the display of art of the Bahamas. The organizers have made a wonderful effort and a lot of hard work has gone into this place. Unfortunately there is insufficient funding to bring the venue up to the heights that it could achieve in its presentation of what exists in this country by way of art.  Simply put it has potential because we the Bahamas has a lot of talent. The police have a wonderful presence in this area and encourage readers to visit. May 2015
