This is a free venue and had a number of different temporary exhibitions. Museum staff were friendly and happy to talk about the exhibitions. There were lots of hands on activities for children and a lovely cafe.

Truly wonderful art gallery to visit and enjoy the design of the building and displays. The staff are the best you could ever hope for, friendly and helpful at all times and tactfully polite in slowing running children down. The cafe is a welcome treat. Thoroughly recommended for a visit, whether solo or not. It makes you get your coins... More

It's a great space and has several exhibitions on at any one time. I was tired so in truth I didn't make the most of it but I found myself a little list between the various spaces, staircases etc

As charming inside as it is imposing on the outside, the Wolverhampton Art Gallery is worth a visit while in the city. Small Georgian and Victorian exhibitions aren’t particularly impressive, but the temporary exhibitions (at my visit: a collection of local photographs and films entitled ‘Black Country Stories’ and some stunning Japanese landscape prints) should certainly be checked out.

The art gallery is a lovely building with some great exhibits and an excellent café. Went in today to look in the shop, which I was disappointed to find no longer exists. All stock(such as it is) has been reduced in an effort to empty the space. When I went to pay at reception I asked about the shop and... More

This art gallery has something for all art lovers and those interested in local history. There is a good mixture of sculpture and paintings in a light airy setting. The staff are friendly and informative without being too pushy. Also well worth a visit is the cafe. Nicely cooked food with delicious quiche and salads!

Nice art gallery with not just serious art but also something for children. You can try there special costumes and also artificial hairs. Lot of fun also with kids or people who are not so much into art.

Don't be put off by the entrance which, whilst great historically, gives the impression of a small cramped gallery. The building opens out to a wonderful Art Space with an eclectic mix of old and new. A tribute to a city I have never visited before.
