This truly is a good art gallery and museum. A lot of the museums I've been to haven't always drawn me to the items on display as this museum has. I'm not one for abstract art but the retro sofas, TVs and other items did make me feel quite nostalgic at one point. It's a shame I couldn't spend much... More

Walking through the spacious reception area you are whisked away into the world of art. This was a very welcome change from the sights you see out and about around the town. Well worth a visit.

We went to see the new gallery as we had heard about it and we were pleasantly surprised with the way it is laid out. The staff are helpful and pro active in guiding you to different exhibits. The fact it was free entry was a good thing but we did leave a donation as we wish to support these... More

There were two exhibitions, both underwhelming. It is a shame that this gallery didn't feel very welcoming or have more to offer. They were in the process of curating two floors of new work however during half term you would have expected more. At the Idris Khan exhibition there is one piece with a series of blocks on the floor.... More

A wonderful gallery with amazing art works from impressionist painitings to sculptures by Jacob Epstein. A lovely space with new artists work regularly exhibited. I especially liked the recent Idris Khan one. Costa coffee shop is on the ground floor with a lovely gift shop.

I used to visit the art gallery often when I was younger, I have lots of fond memories of the place. I could spend hours in the family gallery with the dressing up and lots of hands on activities. I hadn't visited since I was 17 and moved away from Walsall. I now have children of my own so while... More

The building is lovely and has great views across Walsall, but there just didn't seem to be much in there to look at. We were decidedly underwhelmed by the small selection of exhibits that were available. I almost sat on one piece that looked like seating (just a load of boxes in lines?!) and we thought one exhibit was still... More
