  • Small but interesting collection of paintings from the Middle Ages to the Twentieth Century, including some important names like Picasso, Renoir or Monet. Free entry, so worth a visit of you are aroun...  more »
  • This a really great place to visit with family and friends. I had a splendid time here. Parking facilities available too.  more »
  • There were no spaces available at all in the few car parks that were available to visitors which I believe was because they were full of University staff who can park all day for £1 - visitors pay £2....  more »

  • Attend lectures here for continuing professional development as part of my work. The facilities are great. Parking is adequate considering it is based on campus at the university of Birmingham. I do attend only in the evenings but can imagine during the day parking will be more limited. Easy enough to find when using Google maps as a sat nav, pretty much brings you to the door. This place is always clean. Never had a complaint. Steps on entrance to this place. Not sure if it has wheelchair access
  • Lovely gallery, with some amazing pieces and always a friendly member of staff around if you need any help. My daughters attend the Little Artists sessions and my eldest attends Creative Sundays. My children love attending and learn a lot whilst having lots of fun. Both sessions offer a great introduction to art and art history.
  • One my favourite places on earth. Quite small gallery but it contains some works of art that are beyond words. (Free) lunchtime concerts are amazing - on Fridays 1pm -2pm.
  • Small but very interesting. Nice staff . Followed with a visit to Winterbourne gardens just over the road, made for a very pleasant afternoon.
  • One of England's best art galleries outside of London. I know that isn't saying much but still ... Very nice collection well displayed in an uncrowded intimate setting.
