National Gallery of JamaicaJamaica’s primary public art museum, the largest of its kind in the Caribbean, is a key part of the island’s history. Established in 1979, it houses more than 2,000 pieces ranging from pre-Columbian works to those of contemporary Jamaican artists and also mounts temporary exhibitions on various aspects of Jamaica’s history and culture. The collection continues to expand and now includes videos, graphic designs, and street art. Guided tours are available, and there's an on-site coffee shop and gift store.

I have been to Caribbean museums before so I had an expectation as to the work I was going to see but I was pleasantly surprised by The Nation Gallery of Jamaica. Both contemporary and classic art meet in the same building beautifully and its a must see for a trip to Kingston.
