  • I particularly liked all the audio and tactile activities. There was so much to see that we ran out of time after a 2 hour visit. I definitely want go back to see more of what I missed this visit.  more »
  • Disappointed with my visit. History is very sad. Too much war, lies and control. Most of the exhibitions sexualise women - turning them into objects which is very degrading. Very much done from a male...  more »

  • 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.
