This was a stop on our daily safari. A very nice place to stop and soak up some local culture. Prices for articles were good. The gallery had some very nice pieces. Dr.Rico Canada

Cultural Heritage Centre implies, to me, a lot more museum and much less commerce, which is heavily featured at the center. That being said, the art museum is a unique and interesting foray into historic and modern visualizations of the area. A real treat for...More
