The National Art Gallery of The Bahamas (NAGB) was the first institution of its kind in this Caribbean country. Announced in 1996, by then-Prime Minister, Hubert A. Ingraham, as part of a larger expanded system of museums that would record, preserve and historicize the narrative of this nation, established in 1973. The NAGB collects, preserves, exhibits and interprets historic and contemporary Bahamian art.
The museum has four gallery spaces: the PE, or permanent exhibition space, which houses rotating shows drawn on the National Collection; The PS Room, a project space for monthly interventions, and two temporary exhibition spaces (T1 and T2).
