There is so much talent hidden in Bulawayo’s gallery. A visit to the artist’s workshops in the back yards is a must where you can chat to them & buy their paintings in really good prices.

A great use for an old space but its a mixture of art gallery and selling art. Lots of studios out back which can be visited. Great cafe in the building.

Almost no artwork, posters of the local football club throughout with so explanations as to why or who these 1970-80's stars were. No guides, basically nothing other than a nice old colonial building. I really wish I'd read a review like this before paying to...More
