“Treasure trove!1”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

We've been twice, and despite staying for several hours each time, we've still got so much more to discover in future visits! Really enjoyed the current Rowland Emett exhibition: about £5 each to see it, but amazing work and really well displayed. Wish we'd also had time to try out the tea rooms!
Nothing to dislike!

“Not very good”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

I remember going the museum with great memories when I was younger. I have recently returned with my own children and it has gone down hill!!!!!!

There no dinosaurs anymore and very little to keep you and your children interested.

“Getting Good”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

BMAG is a brilliant place to visit now. I am often surprised at the range and beauty of some of the art there.

“Staffordshire hoard experience”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

We planned a visit to Birmingham especially to visit the museum. The experience of the Staffordshire hoard was excellent, but we were disappointed with the city of Birmingham.....especially the public transport system.
