This is a must see in Birmingham. There were so many beautiful art works I never could have imagined. They validate your parking for free.

It is a really nice museum with art from all over the world. The periodic special exhibits are also generally quite nice. Plus, except for special events, it is totally free to the public. Hard to beat that.
