Interesting - ask for a guide to show the highlights instead of just wandering around. The shop is very good, and as it is in the centre of the town, when you have had a look at St Peters, move onto the art gallery.

Over the past few years the gallery as undergone a face lift putting it firmly in the fantastic to visit category All ways some thing new to see and stretch your imagination. A land mark facility to take the city of Wolverhampton into the future with a good working relationship with the Uni of Wolves Art department.

This is a small, traditional style gallery which has a good selection of paintings but what for me set it apart and made an interesting visit outstanding, was the display of works by Martin Parr under the title 'Black Country Stories'.

It's really nice to have a centre of calm in the city. The art collections are beautiful, the exhibitions are interesting and 'coat hanger man' keeps me coming back.

On the whole its a good museum and art gallery, the Victorian side has some fantastic peices in side, I was really excited about the new build area of the museum, but its quite a disappointment in reality a bit of a waisted opportunity I think..
