Newest Review: ... art and stained glass all over the world. Also, this section of the museum houses two stone sphinxes which were originally at Soho House, another museum within the Birmingham Museums group. On the same floor, is a gorgeous Edwardian tea room which is a lovely setting to sit down and have a rest from your trip round the museum. The museum houses the Staffordshire Hoard of Anglo-Saxon ... more

I've been to Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery many times and get it never gets old. My boyfriend and I had a wander around whilst in Birmingham last weekend. If you fancy a day out, then Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery is the place to go. The opening hours for the museum are 10am - 5pm, except for Friday, where it opens at 10.30. The museum is absolutely huge and the picture of the front of it at the top of the page absolutely does not do it justice for how vast it really is. The main entrance is in Chamberlain Square (by the old library, town hall and the Conservatoire). The main entrance has a lot of steps, but there is a more accessible entrance to the ...

My sister suggested visiting Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery as we were staying with her for the Easter Weekend. The museum is free entry (with charges for special exhibitions). It is housed in a lovely old building with some really lovely features including an Edwardian tearoom.

I am lucky enough to live a short train ride away from Birmingham, and it is one of the places we always go in the school holidays. Why? ITS FREE!!! Not many places are free these days and this is a really fun place to visit. Situated in central Birmingham, not far from the main shopping area, Birmingham museum is easy to find, because it is so big. There are a variety of displays, something to interest everyone, with a vast art gallery, displays of wooden items, and and ancient cultures section.This is the section I always head to straight away. The Egyptian room has an impressive selection of ancient artifacts and two human mummies on display. My parents ... Read the complete review

I visited Birmingham recently to go to the Imax and watch Avatar 3D (which was fab, and I'll review that soon too!). As it took us just over an hour to drive into Birmingham, we decided to go on the morning and spend some time looking around before getting something to eat and heading over to the film. After a quick Google search, I found the Museum & Art gallery was free and is one of those 'things to do' whilst in Brum, so we decided to do that. It was a bit different to the norm, as I only ever really go shopping in Brimingham, so I'm glad I went. The museum & art gallery is part of 6 other mseums, including Aston Hall, Soho House, Weoley Castle, ... Read the complete review
