I visited the museum and found it very informative. If I remember it correctly, they are planning to close it for about a year. They planning to refurbish the whole place.

Covid safe and lovely to visit
Oct 2020 • Friends
We visited and were overjoyed to be able to enjoy some culture again. The venue is well prepared with Covid measures in place that make it very safe. It’s well organised and very well thought out for Covid. Do be aware that the museum and gallery are not fully open, some rooms are not suitable to be Covid secured and are closed off to visitors.
The museum has a one way system and starts in the faith gallery entering via Gas Street. The art gallery’s go in reverse order but the lady who sold us our guide book showed us where to start (pg38) and work backwards.
There is a lot not open but they are making every effort during such tough times. Thanks to all the staff.

Every aspect of this gallery grabs the attention. Even the restaurant is lined with cultural and contextual art references. The art is well positioned clearly defined and permanent exhibitions very well staged. Superb staff

Beautiful architecture
Sep 2020 • Friends
Although I never visited the Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery I must say I was totally impressed with this building that houses the museum.
A beautiful Victorian building constructed in 1885 ,its distinctive clock tower is a Birmingham landmark know as " Big Brum " ,it a great piece of architecture, adds to the joy of walking through Victoria Square and most definitely well worth a visit if you're in the area, I will make a point of visiting this museum on my next trip to this cosmopolitan city .

To see his work in his home town is stunning. So many amazing works of art and history here. The museum has great Egyptian objects that are so interesting. You can idle away hours here and leave with a new perspective of the world.
