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.

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.

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.
