  • A wonderful, free activity in downtown Birmingham. The museum was surprisingly large with a variety of exhibits. They also have an area for younger children to make their own art. Although we didn't eat there, the restaurant inside the museum seemed to be more upscale than I expected. Definitely a place worth a couple of hours if you're in the area.
  • The Birmingham Museum of Art is a masterpiece in itself. The museum is comprised of so many beautiful exhibits and artifacts. The place is really good option to visit with family. Moreover, the museum offers many activities for kids where they can have learning as well as fun. There is something for everyone to enjoy. This is a wonderful place.
  • This was a pretty nice place to visit. I wish there was more though. I think more paintings would be really cool, as well as a section on Egypt! There were A LOT of pottery items and little knickknacks that didn't interest me personally, but it was still cool to see. It wasnt very busy so I think Sunday's are a good time to go to avoid crowds.
  • Took the drive into Birmingham to the Art Museum. It was a lovely collection. A lot of the museum reminded me of the Carlos Museum at Emory in Atlanta. They both have good representationsof Asian, African and native art as week as the usual Egyptian artifacts, European and American art. It was a good trip if you love art. My traveling companion does, so she really enjoyed it.
  • My friend and I brought our kids here for a play date. The kids enjoyed the scavenger hunt and that kid play area. We all were able to enjoy the beautiful art and the spacious rooms. I appreciate that the art museum only ask for donations. We frequently support the museum in various ways and always enjoy ourselves.
