  • I cannot begin to talk about how impressed I was with this gallery. The art work was thought provoking and the curator does a fine job of selecting and presenting the art work. I was there for an hour and I felt like I needed more time to absorb the artwork. If you are an art or history lover, please stop on in! Entry fee was very reasonable too.
  • I am not really an art person. But I generally visit on a quiet Sunday afternoon just to view the exhibits. It's always very clean and the workers are quite pleasant.
  • Good place to see really nice art work but needs more art work on slavery
  • Works of art from prehistory to contemporary. .. guides available and recommended.
  • Tour of the gallery gives you a great snapshot of Jamaican culture through the decades to present. The Biennial is a must see and after can stop by the gift store for some great coffee & sandwiches.
