National Art Gallery


Set in a beautiful 100-year-old, colonial, double-terrace Edwardian building, the National Art Gallery shows temporary and permanent exhibitions of contemporary Zimbabwean sculpture and paintings. A visit here wouldn't be complete without dropping by the studios of the artists in residence, who you can meet at work and buy from directly.

There's a quality gallery shop and lovely cafe too.
