The Junkanoo exhibit was interesting. Art was indicative of native Bahamas and colorful. It was a small museum with a couple of wings being prepared for future exhibits.

Fantastic location, fantastic staff, and amazing, regularly changing exhibitions showing Bahamian art at its finest. Not the dull tourist brochure stuff, but some truly progressive works.

For a very small country, this is a charming and wonderful experience. Full of Bahamian art and such a lot of talent.

When we visited in March 2014, the second story was closed for setup of a new exhibit so we think that's why we were only charged $3 admission. Worth the stop when exploring Nassau on foot though it is a few blocks from central downtown.

It was fun to walk through this two-story building to see the kind of art that comes from the Bahamas. Worth a stop!
