Part of the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, this Victorian building is so named since it was once occupied by the main gas company in the city and the place where local people went to pay their gas bills.

Went to this exhibition twice. I was only vaguely aware of Emett's work. It was interesting to see everyone walking around with a smile on their face as they watched the mechanical pieces. I particularly liked the 'diving figure' - so amusing. It was so good I went back for a second visit and took the grandchildren.

Fascinating Exhibition of Mechanical Paraphernalia. A exhibition and insight into one mans passionate description and obsession of life, within a city, a city, who's roots are deeply embedded in its manufacturing and mechanical past, a excellent opportunity to view the UK's second city from this Unique viewpoint. Rowland was quite a fellow, Marvellous Machines indeed. And the Children loved it!

I pencilled this into the plans for a 2 day break in the city with my children (8, 10 and 13) as a time filler if needed, yet it turned out to be the highlight of our break. At only £10 for a family ticket, it was wonderful value - a truly fascinating exhibition, with plenty of information about Emett,... More

£6.50 for an adult and £5.50 for a child - the content of the exhibition does not justify the admission price. There are much better ways to spend your time and money in Birmingham!

Excellent exhibition thoroughly enjoyed by my grandchildren. I felt that £6.50 for adults and £5.50 for 3 years and upwards made it a little expensive, especially as we were there for not much over an hour but there were lots of things for the children to do.

We visit the main Birmingham art gallery often, but last year we found this place just round the corner from the main entrance. The exhibition was for art faker John Myatt. Very interesting, and all for free. Shall certainly check around the corner in future.

Loads to see in this exhibition and well worth the £5 entry fee. :-) This is the second exhibit we have seen at the Gas Hall and we have always been impressed.
