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.

If you are artistic or just an appreciator of fine arts then this is your ideal place to visit. From stone carving, wood carving, oil on canvas, oil on paper to photography and sale of fine artifacts.

A well-laid out display of recent artwork by Zimbabwean artists; paintings, photography, collage, sculpture. Interesting display of recycled art. Many are for sale. We spent a very wet afternoon there and then enjoyed a coffee in the cafe. Pleasant gardens for a sunny day.

The Gallery is supposed to be a museum which showing a part of history, culture and environment of Zimbabwe, but its mostly advertising about Mugabe. Many of the items are just a picture or a banner than a real item.
