Amazing gallery with beautiful artworks, the staff are very helpful and nice. The Covid situation is being handled well and I felt safe the whole time. Students at UoB are missing out on this place that is right at their feet when they go into uni. As I was walking around, one of the staff came over and told me some really interesting facts about some of the paintings, I would like to thank him for that. The Rossetti and Monet are the names that I went for but in hindsight I would say some of the more beautiful paintings are from the lesser known artists! If you don't know anything about art, that's fine, I didn't either, but I would definitely go back!

Didn't expect to find such a lovely art Gallery situated inside Birmingham University. We took our kids (12, 11 and 6 yr old) and in their words ''they had a nice time visiting the gallery. Favourite part was the historic coin collection...'' We found the staff all friendly and very helpful. With situation of Covid there are obviously rules in place (pre-book time slot etc) but that made it even more enjoyable for the kids as it meant the gallery was virtually empty. The kids got to take the history and art all in their own time....

A fantastic small pocket of art within the university of Birmingham. It’s mostly classic paintings and sculptures by Degas, Manet, Pisarro, Van Gogh, Gauguin, Delacroix, Rodin, Boticelli, and many others can be found in this well curated collection. Includes some crafted objects and small artefacts, ivory boxes, coins, etc. The atmosphere is perfect and the staff is very welcome and savvy about the artwork 👌. And it’s FREE!

Superb eclectic selection of art works displayed in a building that is art in itself. Absolute icons of the art world tucked away modestly.

A small but gem of a gallery which has some fantastic pieces of art and sculpture within. Visited on Sunday which allowed us to park for free next to it. Took about hour and a half to walk round at a slow pace. Staff knowledgeable and enthusiastic too. Would highly recommend a visit. You do have to prebook but it was free.
