Visited the Art Gallery and enjoyed viewing the paintings and models on display. The guide who took us around was very friendly and full of information. Will be visiting again soon.

The inside of the museum is a mixture of interconnecting spaces with a wide variety of art and sculpture. Connected out side is a cafe and garden area with more sculpture. Well worth a visit.

Went for the 60 year celebrations at the art gallery. Really lovely space featuring local artists and also pieces from other parts of the world. Space is utilized creatively and offers and nice viewing experience. The celebrations were also well-organized with food and drinks.

This is one place where you can see a wide variety of paintings and sculpture work. When I went there, there was a mbira music group entertaining visitors, which added to the excitement. Very low entrance fees, which makes the place affordable to visit

The National Gallery was a great place to spend an afternoon. Unfortunately, when I went the paintings section was closed, so all I got to see was the outdoor sculpture garden, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Then lounged in the sun, with many others. The staff...More
