National Gallery Tours

Jamaica’s National Gallery is the biggest and oldest public art museum in the British Caribbean. Opened in 1974, the gallery features an impressive collection of Jamaican art. Visitors explore the works chronologically, starting with exceptionally rare woodcarvings from the Taino people who lived in the Caribbean before Columbus, moving through the colonial eras into the modern day. There’s an entire exhibit devoted to the works of sculptor Edna Manley, considered the mother of modern Jamaican art. Temporary exhibits showcase contemporary artists.

Practical Info

The National Gallery is located right near the waterfront just steps from Port Royal St. Visitors can explore the gallery on their own for just a few dollars, while those interested in a more in-depth experience can hire a guide for about $16 and take a 45-minute tour.
