Good to see something taken on tour out of London. Well worth seeing especially as it’s free. Other bits and bobs ok but there is only one star attraction.

The clue is in the name. You get Dippy the Natural History museum's most famous exhibit and a few old stuffed birds (not the Christmas dinner type!). The star is the dino himself with no others around to detract from his impressive size. Nice to...More

Marvellous free exhibition of Dippy the diplodocus on tour from the Natural History Museum. Beautifully displayed in the Gas Hall. Only criticism, over priced Dippy souvenirs, 50% more than in London. Edwardian Tea Room is excellent and the Staffordshire Hoard well worth seeing.

This is an absolutely amazing place to go if you want to learn about Birmingham right from its beginning. It has a very factual history, and is also interactive. I found it to be a family friendly place

I'm not very disabled but I have difficulty walking and I found the museum very disabled friendly. The lifts are good and there's masses of space for wheelchairs
