The art i found displayed was mostly locally procured and produced. If you have a special relationship with zimbabwean stone art and African art in general then you really need to see this gallery for it will satisfy your curiosity.

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 probably by far the best year to visit the gallery, which was previously named after Queen Elizabeth, as it turns 60 years old. With diverse pieces at any given time from sculpture to visiual pieces, this is the unheralded gem in the art...More
