This welcomed us as we toured the Hamilton area. The main exhibit was interesting and gallery itself showed local artwork and photos.

I find your comment interesting as your visit was to two distinct spaces with two different missions and yet it felt like one. I will be sure to pass this on to the Boards of both organizations. Please visit Bermuda again soon!

The national gallery of art is housed in a fantastic white building. We walked all around it and took many photos of the details. My favorite: the caravel on top of the building. Marvelous!
