Being a Wulfrunan and travelled the length and breadth of England, I have to say we have a decent art gallery in Wolves. But for some reason unlike other cities we don't promote these things enough. The Wolf in Sheeps clothing is the mechanical statue that comes out of the first floor balcony at about five minutes past the hour.... More

We all came as a class from St Johns Bridgnorth, we extremely enjoyed this trip ! We loved all the paintings and art work from a mix of modern and old fashioned.

My sister is a local artist and has painted here many times with people milling around and watching! I have walked around here many times and been really proud - not just of my sister's work but of the diversity of choice here. Well bone the curators.

We visited on a rainy day in Jan. The building is beautiful and it has a really good mix of things to see. Two non permanent exhibitions, both great, and a lovely, manageable collection of Pop art, Edwardian and Victorian. Cafe excellent with very friendly staff. Came out feeling inspired, despite the weather!
