  • How have I lived in Coventry for nearly twenty years and never visited this place! An amazing and extremely child friendly museum. Lots of hands on exhibitions. My kids particularly enjoyed the Vikings. Dressing up and exploring different roles in Viking society. The galleries on Coventry and the natural world were really interesting too. In the end only hunger managed to peel the kids away. A great half day out and free too!
  • Excellent museum with interesting permanent and travelling exhibits, with great local history. Great for a visit with small children when the sensory space is open. Lots of bits for children to dress up in and experiment with in the exhibits. Shop is reasonably priced. Best of all is that it's free! (Donations requested but not "charged")
  • Myself and my children love the Herbert Art Gallery! We are always taking part in the activities and love to look around the exhibitions too. The staff are always very helpful and the place is always very clean and tidy.
  • Fantastic cultural venue. Featuring interesting temporary and permanent exhibitions as well as playing host to a while bunch of exciting events throughout the year. The Herbert also has gender neutral toilets!
  • Regularly visit. Love the variety of activities/classes available for babies, teenagers & adults of our family. As well as just being a great museum, with great exhibits in the studio gallery.

Where to stay in Coventry

A stay among the Gothic and Victorian architecture of the city center is within walking distance of the main attractions. Consider a rental room or B&B on the medieval Spon Street or near the canal. Both locations are scenic and conveniently located near the city center. Full of local eateries and shops, the Earlsdon area offers less expensive apartment rentals.
