Probably not a first to view in Birmingham but as it is close to Brindley place well worth popping in to see what exhibitions they have on . Excellent use of space and very interesting to see work of modern artists.

Just the two exhibition halls but really worth a visit. If you love modern art don't look anywhere further than the ikon. Perfect wonderful and really enjoyable

I was delighted to attend the wonderful Dan Flavin exhibition. Incredible use of such a beautiful and historic building, and staff knowledge of it's local importance certainly enhances its appeal. I have returned on many occasions. Do stop in the gift shop for the brilliant...More
