  • Review for the museum: I usually don't have much interest in history, but found the Herbert Museum very interesting. The museum has lots of historical objects and photos from Coventry's past. The museum is mostly about the fabric, motoring and manufacturing past. I have an interest in engineering, so I spent a good amount of time here. There are also exhibitions held at the Herbert, so I will have a look at these next time I have a spare few hours. There is also a cafe here, which is worth a visit too. Review for the cafe: I first visited here because Coventry University were offering free cake here during Fresher's week. I definitely intend to come back. I have come here twice - both for hot chocolate and cake. The hot chocolate was average, but the cakes are amazing! On my first visit I had a Victoria Sponge. It was delicious. The servings are of a perfect size. On my second visit I just picked up a random cake. I don't know what it was, but I still loved it! The staff here are helpful and will answer any question asked about the food and drink in the cafe. They were very efficient and happy to help. I will be back again, and have suggested the cafe to my parents for when they come up to Coventry.
  • A little gem of a museum. Tucked in behind the ruins of St Michaels, it is a real treat to find. Plenty of things for children and adults to touch, see and do. Great fun!
  • A great free resource in Coventry. Worth looking out for the feature exhibitions. We recently visited to see the Lego exhibition
  • This is a fantastic place for the people of Coventry. There is always a great exhibition on.
  • Fantastic place for kids and parents. Craft in the summer, always interesting exhibits and nice food in the cafe.
