Such a beautiful place with stunning artwork. It took me about 45 minutes just to skim through most of the art but I loved every bit of it. Inside, it spirals up each level and offers thousands of pieces of beautiful African artwork. The building is also lovely and there are a couple of nice coffee shops in there!
Souvenirs, art, culture and history in one place. Well organized art gallery and the good thing is it has a wheelchair access to all its floors. The gallery has 2 restaurants and food is available. You need some ample time to enjoy the gallery.
