Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We didn’t arrive at the museum until 4pm but just enough time to see the Pre-Raphaelite and Arts and Crafts collections. Beautifully curated and worth a visit.

Museum website said they were open school holiday Mondays. I booked a ticker on their website for Monday 27 May at noon and paid the fee. Traveled 2 1/2 hours from Cambridge - museum was closed. Their booking was a lie.

With anticipation looked forward to spending a couple of hours amidst superlative art. Housed in a marvellous building with clock tower and Neoclassical themed styling. It was opened in 1885.

So a tad disappointed to discover its current closure for essential maintenance. Will have to return when it again reopens.

Such a lovely looking building. Huge. In an attractive square. Part was closed sadly so we missed out but it's one good place to visit in Birmingham.

Visited on Monday 04th July 2022 As part of a day trip to Birmingham by train following a walk from Gas Street Basin back towards Birmingham New Street Station. It's free to enter and TBH given that you can't expect too much, but correspondingly for a free Museum, it had an interesting range of modern art, in a building that is a work of art in itself. The cafe looked great but appears to close way before the actual museum.

I love and am so proud of Birminghams art gallery. It is a beautiful building, full of interesting and varied art to keep you intrigued. The museum is also really interesting.

I also love the cafe and would recommend anyone go visit.
