Worth a visit

This is a lovely free museum right in the heart of Wolverhampton. Not just a rainy day attraction, it's worth a visit in all weather!

For a place like Wolverhampton this was pretty good. Passed a good 90 mins browsing. Has its own coffee shop / café and gift shop. Had a couple of good touring exhibitions while we were there.

I only recently stated to take my Godson to the art workshops on Saturday. He can be difficult when trying out new things so i had to compromise that we could leave after half hour if he still disliked it. I couldn't get him to leave after the session finished! Now when he visits me, he always ask to go... More

Went with 2 children a few weeks ago, a good, unpretentious local gallery with some very new exhibitions, I liked the space film room, very good. Things for the kids to do include dressing up in period costumes and a sensory room, touch, feel etc. We all enjoyed it and its always worth checking out what is on there as... More

Wow! I am lost for words - me and my friend absolutely loved it at the Wolverhampton art gallery, I am so glad we visited, as we originally just came to see a band at the civic hall but, glad we ended our stay in Wolves, here. We both travelled from different parts of the country and we would happily... More

What a pleasant way to spend a rainy afternoon. Whilst some of the exhibits might be a little strange for my taste, there was a wide range to choose from and there truly is something for everyone to appreciate. Nice tearoom/café too.

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
