  • Nice place to visit. We’ve been several times. Makes a nice and free indoor activity in the city. Great to take out of town guests to. Pompeii and other traveling exhibits should not be missed.  more »

  • Every time I visit, I can't believe this place is free. The volunteers are wonderful, the exhibits change enough so that you want to return again to see more, and it's a great place to have a picnic or drink some coffee while taking in the sights. My kiddos also enjoy the majority of it!
  • First time and so much better than what I had expected. Absolutely beautiful and amazing peices. Anything from the 1900's to Artwork from today. Anything from furniture to pottery. I can not wait to go back and see what they have to offer next. You can go to their website and find who or what subject they will be featuring next. Cheap to get in and an amazing view for hours to come. They also have a gift shop and restaurant.
  • Great museum to visit! Free admission but they accept donations at the entrance. Some really cool pieces of art. I really wanted to touch the paintings but I had to restrain.
  • One word HUGE! The Birmingham art museum is free admissions between noon and five pm. They have friendly, knowledgeable security and staff on each floor for individual inquiries and the protection of the artwork. Provides on site devices linked to there site to help you get a better contextual link to the artist and their work. Some pieces even have audio of the artist or a video of art craft history and making process.
  • Amazing place to visit in Birmingham, great displays of contemporary and historical art, inside and outside the museum. Features an exhibition called "Third Space" which contains thought provoking works. Different parts of the museum have art from places all around the world in various mediums.
