accidentally stopped here, If you have the time it's interesting and free. Nice brief history on local things. Located in a area where you can continue walking and find nice things to see and do for free

If you're interested in learning the history of the islands and even seeing artwork, here is the place to go. You can't take pictures inside the museum though. The building seems to be under minor renovation, which is great because it seems to be moving up with the times. The artifacts, to me, are priceless and it is worth going. I

The museum had great content but poorly displayed. The art museum was fantastic with many artists and media and video of artist discussing their work and even demonstrating their process.

Love the historical pics and stories they had. It had a lot of cultural pics from a variety of genre.

The National Museum and Art Gallery is a tired old museum, but worth the visit. It has lots of interesting information and exhibits but like all underfunded government project it is quickly outdated. The staff at the front desk were very welcoming and made a big fuss about not bringing in a camera or a fire arm! I had a camera and was told not to shoot any photos inside the museum. I found the geology and archaeology sections particularly informative.
