Lovely free activity for an afternoon in the city centre. Huge display of artwork and a very good interactive section on Birmingham history! The edwardian tea rooms are lovely if a little steeply priced but most of the proceeds go towards keeping the museum free....More

Went during half term with a 7 and 11 year old, they enjoyed the themes of the exhibitions and the activities that were put on for the kids. They also enjoyed the very tasty cake in the Edwardian Tea Rooms!

In Birmingham for the weekend and after a late brunch on Saturday thought we'd wander around the New Street shopping centre and perhaps give HMV some financial support. The place was heaving and after queuing just to reach an escalator we decided to leave and...More

Properly busy today as it was half term. Lots of interactive displays for the kids. Thought the sweet to sour emoji exhibition was rather odd. Loved the Leonardo da Vinci room and seeing the Staffordshire Hoard.

We visited the museum and art gallery again this week, this time to see the Da Vinci exhibition. My teenage girls always enjoy the trip, we see the new things on show, but always have time to revisit their favourites.

I returned to this beautiful museum again Saturday to see the Da Vinci exhibition, we had to queue but it was well worth it. An excellent selection of drawings well set out and I would recommend you visit while the exhibition is there.

This really is an incredible museum and Art Gallery and far exceeded our expectations. To do it justice you need a whole day to view much of what it has to offer. We were also delighted to be able to visit the Leonardo da Vinci...More

Had a nice morning at the museum visiting the exhibitions, including part of the royal Leonardo da Vinci collection. Grown ups enthralled, kids slightly less so, but free and great for a couple of hours

I think it’s ok to take photos, or at least I got away with taking about 35 without being told off! But there’ll be the usual rule about not using flash, although the lighting is pretty good so you shouldn’t need to.

There are a number of car parks quite close, the nearest is the multi storey on Cambridge Street, less than 5 minutes walk away. It is quite expensive during the day. We use the train as it's cheaper.
