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.

This is a mightily impressive art gallery for a small provincial city. Housed in a chunky Victorian building which would not be out of place in a corner of South Kensington, it contains a wealth of varying exhibitions both temporary and permanent spread over two floors. No doubt drawing on its own impressive collections he star of today's show was... More

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!

I have been here every time I visit Wolverhampton, it is by far the best place in the city: a lovely memorial garden next to it, the building is big, warm, plush and magnificent, the staff always without fail helpful and expert: you don't see this in London galleries much, which is a shame. The selection or art and artifacts... More

Always worth a visit, there are temporary exhibitions as well as the permanent displays. Plenty to keep the kids amused - in the Victorian and Georgian galleries they can try on costumes, and in the sensory gallery they can touch the exhibits. I can't recommend the current exhibition, "The Making of Mordor", too highly - a must for anyone interested... More

Right in the centre of Wolverhampton this gallery, although not very big, as some nice exhibits. I find it's nice to pop in for a hour to have a look around and have lunch in the excellent cafe. They have changing exhibits and once a month lunch time talks about local history subjects. There is a little gift shop too... More
