  • The people are very creative and cooperative
  • I absolutely loved it! I had no idea you could do so much with old bolts, used padlocks and scrap metal. This is by far one of the most creative places I've been to in Dar es Salaam so if you're a collector of oddly attractive things this is a place you must visit. Some of the smaller items are around 35,000/- to around 85,000/- Tshs and the larger ones such as the Rhino goes for about 1,500,000/- Tsh. The animal printed/punctured double gate is around 2,800,000/- Tsh with a discount possibility.
  • This is one of the most creative places I have ever being , they thrive to grow, and are always open to new ideas. They are very responsive and always willing to go an extra mile for the client. They make scrap metals look cool, set a meeting with them if you have a school and visit the workshop and see how they redefined welding sculptures. Chuma Art Gallery are so humble and very talented in my opinion, I would dare all of y'all to pay them a visit and support this talent.
  • Local getting together with a great idea to create employment and clean up the environment
  • Very hardworking artisans who are not limited by their physical abilities. I love their work so much. They do coporate pieces, life sized animal pieces even small sized everyday souvenirs from scrap metals. By buying Chuma's products you are supporting physically Disabled artists and their families. #metalart
