The Birmingham Museum of Art is a must see for all visitors to the Magic City, as well as residents! The museum has something for everyone. Free parking for the tight wad, a first rate hands on children's center for old and young alike (I regularly borrow young children for outings). There is a lovely cafe in a beautiful setting,...

I am not much into abstract or modern art but the collection of modern and earlier art is very nice. I really enjoyed the from the Wedgewood Pottery in England . Such a variety and beautiful pieces!

The museum often has excellent exhibits, most recent the Normal Rockwell collection. Excellent. However I recently saw the Delacroix exhibit and was disappointednotmuch of his work was in the exhibit. Almost half were copy pieces from his stripy dens. Nothing large was included either.

Permanent exhibitions, which are free, include European, Asian, Native American, US, Central and South American arts. A bit of different things. More to see than at Nashville Frist Museum and probably the biggest collection in Alabama.

I was pleasantly surprised about this art museum! If offered a ton of art from various time periods. I especially liked the garden. Really cool! This place is cool for families with children of all ages. It looked like on the second floor, that kids were doing their own art. Pretty cool! It's also free!!!

We arrived in Birmingham very tired and stumbled upon this museum. It was Sunday and admission was free. The cafe was closed. We have been to many European museums, but the collections still managed to impress us. The layout, displays and explanations were well done. Beautiful items.

Who would have ever thought that such a great art museum would be located in Birmingham! This was one of my favorite places we visited when we were in this city! So much art! Such great pieces! Pottery, paintings, photography, furniture, silver, glass, sculpture, almost any kind of medium you can imagine! A Monet! A Rodin! Wedgewood! And so much... More

My family and I have visited the Museum several times over the past 4 years. We always have a nice time. The art is beautiful and some of the exhibits change often. The Wedgewood exhibit is beautiful. This museum is a must see and is free to the public.
