  • We visited today. This is the first time I have been to the museum and I have lived in Birmingham all my life. The collections are quite good, and the building is much larger than I would have known. ...  read more »
  • Beautiful museum, stunning art. Great lighting. This place really delivered for me. Was better than i thought it would be. Impressive collection on display for a city this size. 
  • One of the few art museums with free admission. The Museum's collection comes across throughout art history. In addition, it has several international prestigious special collections and offers regularly special exhibitions. The architecture of the Museum alone is worth a visit.

  • Love the BMA! It has extensive collections of Asian and American art, not to mention a whole floor of European art spanning the Renaissance to the 19th century. I love the Wedgwood ceramics collection and the Dutch/Flemish paintings the most. We first went in '04 to see an Impressionists exhibit(!), and a few years ago there was a Norman Rockwell exhibit. The gift shop has many unique items too.
  • Very disappointed as I wasn't allowed to bring my child's diaper bag into the museum due to it being a backpack style. I understand there are needs for safety procedures, but I saw several women walk in with very large totes and no one blinked an eye. Your rule makes it terribly inconvenient for parents to even change a diaper. I probably would have been okay if someone would have simply apologized for the inconvience, but instead I was looked at like I was crazy.
  • Mind blown! Not what I was expecting. There is so much to enjoy here. Bonus. Free parking and free admission.
  • Has a pretty good variety of things. Even though I was there for over an hour, I only saw about a third of their exhibits. I really enjoyed it though! I will be back to see the rest soon!
  • It's so nice that it's hard to believe it's free. Also, try Oscar's... their restaurant - delish food!
