  • We visited specifically to see the international wildlife photography exhibition that is open until October 17. It was £4 entrance each adult to see the photos which were exceptional. Worth every penny of the entrance cost but sadly with just three seats available to watch an interesting continuous playing video. The cafe had some very good pakora with a large cup of lovely coffee each afterwards ☺️
  • Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition is amazing, well worth the £4 ticket price. The rest of the gallery is free to visit and I really enjoyed the other displays, in particular the puppetry and This Way Up exhibition.
  • Bring kids here for a look around and occasionally when there is an event. Always a nice couple of hours out
  • A little gem in the heart of Wolverhampton, on our visit we found a lot of interactive items the children loved to play with, dressing up and a superb Lego exhibition to get us in the mood for Lego land., the staff were friendly and helpful. We went for lunch in the cafe that was reasonably priced and a good selection of nice food. We'll be visiting again.
  • Underrated art gallery. Treat local art the same as international art. Always something good to see. Have recently had both the Lego exhibition and the Wildlife Photographer of the Year.
