This art gallery is unlike any other. The art gallery itself was great but the best thing was wandering out the back being invited into the artists' studios. It was such a cool experience and everyone was so lovely and passionate about their work. Highly...More

A great use for an old space but its a mixture of art gallery and selling art. Lots of studios out back which can be visited. Great cafe in the building.

A bastion of culture and the arts. Engulf yourself with the beat of Bulawayo dedicated to the presentation and conservation of the artistic heritage.

There is plenty to look forward to. British occupation and influence in shaping Zimbabwe depicted in Pictures. Easy access to site.

Has a wide range of art forms from local artists. Including sculptures, paintings and beaded jewelry. One can see and put orders from the artists in the work studios.

Centrally located the museum provides a good overview of local artist. Different styles and techniques on display. If possible have a look at the ateliers of some artists in the garden. The museum shop provides very reasonably priced craftsmanship souvenirs. A must see.
