In the summer holiday my girls and I spend a good three hours around here there was things for my younger daughter to do while my older daughter spent time with the art. The food in the restaurant was lovely it was a great time.

Open on a wet bank holiday and full of families. We were new to Birmingham and particularly enjoyed the' Story of Birmingham' gallery. It is also free though a donation is appreciated. The tea room is good value. It is easy to get lost but there is always something interesting around the corner.

Entrance to the Museum and Atr Gallery is free though a charge is made for special exhibitions. The displays are interesting and do change from time to time. There is an excellent cafe/restaurant serving good wholesome food.

The recently remodeled Edwardian Tea Room is a great place to have light fare and rest your museum-weary feet. The beetroot soup and fresh crusty bread were delicious. The room is light and airy and comfortable and has free wi-fi.

There are many amazing pieces of art here. The collection of Pre-Raphaelite paintings are fantastic. I would return again to view my favorite pieces.
