I was disappointed when I found out that the national Library was closed on a Sunday afternoon but then I found right beside a local art gallery with interesting displays of local handicraft !

Interesting artwork

Although the gallery was not that expansive, there was a display of local modern art as well as historical information about Seychelles. From time to time there are exhibits on display and it definitely is worth visiting if you have some time to spare.

For the locals and the desperate
Feb 2015 • Couples
We had been given a tourist map by our hotel which showed the National Museum here as well. A lady at reception told us the museum was now closed. So we had a look through the public areas of the art gallery. There are 2 modest rooms, one containing general art, presumably by local artists and the other containing portraits with names of the people, but no other info. It took us about 5 minutes. We spent a lot more time in the foyer looking at photos of the Archbishop of Cyprus's time as an exile in the Seychelles - an event I hadn't been aware of. Photos had quite good descriptive info.

There are some photogenic old cannons, probably from shipwrecks, out on the front verandah, but there is no information provided about them.

Save it for a rainy day or if you are truly desperate for something to do.

Interesting small collection

Although the portraits of local identities were of people unknown to us, it was pleasing that they had thought to commission an artist to do them as part of their history. I am sure they will be treasured in later years. There were also a number of paintings by local artists in the adjoining room. Mostly the styles would be described as "naive". Just behind the reception area on entering the building there was an exhibition of the time spent in the Seychelles by Archbishop Makarios, who was exiled from Cyprus for a period by the British Government.

There is a national portrait gallery most likely of important local historical figures and next to this gallery there was more local art work form local artists. basic paintings rather with scenery and portraits, figurative and classic style. Interesting little break in the middle of the small Victoria buzz
