  • Absolutely AMAZING collection, building, staff, etc. There were almost no others there during my visit. I highly recommend, was not touristy (besides being a museum of course) and we gained a much better understanding of Bahamian art and culture as well as the art and culture of the world. Very well curated exhibits ranging in medium and style, fantastic! Also, free WiFi, air conditioning, bathrooms, and a great gift shop!
  • Wonderful collection of art, and everyone we met was happy to help us or answer questions!
