  • This gallery illustrates 'best practice' in a small collection. It is well-presented throughout and well worth a detour to visit, or indeed to be made a destination by those interested in painting. I would have made the journey to see the Gainsborough alone, but there is much else of interest. The Curators, and all who support this collection, are to be congratulated on their work. Entrance, admirably, is free. The chargeable wildlife photography exhibition is stunning so fork out, it's worth it!
  • Fabulous little gem of a gallery. Diverse range of artwork in and a perfect venue for a wedding. Guides we're helpfuland friendly but not intrusive would definitely recommend a visit.
  • Went to see a wildlife photography exhibition and followed up with a nice light lunch. Enjoyed my visit and would go again.
  • Really great place and surprisingly good for lunch. Have good exhibitions. Layout giving you to view
  • Fantastic customer service. Got to Wolverhampton and found out the train station had no bag storage. Carried my bags to this museum since it was a stop I wanted to make. The gentleman I spoke with was extremely understanding and said we could keep our bags in the lockers all day so long as we contribute what we can to the museum. I only had two £1 coins and he said that was totally fine. Great location- right near tons of local attractions and it is clean, well kept and very well curated. Lots of wonderful national and local art!!
