Amazing improvements and some are still going on. If you have never visited you will be amazed,if you have visited in past see the changes. It is best to visit when you have 2-4 hours and not in a hurry. Also advisable to have realistic expectations which are not too high. Good idea to have a break for coffee tea... More

Saturday afternoon visit. I used to really like visiting here bit standards at this gallery are very much falling: Shabby, dirty and dusty galleries in need of attention Peeling paintwork and worn wallpaper. Uninspiring exhibitions. Broken audio points. No visible gallery staff. Rubbish left in public lift. No gallery staff to ask questions. Card machine in coffee shop broken. Coffeeshop... More

My children love coming here and seeing the latest exhibits, also not many people know about it but i think around 5 past every hour the big silver wolf in Sheeps clothing comes out from the balcony outside with red glowing eyes and smoke from its nose, something my kids look for now every time we're in the town.

I last visited here over 30 years ago and I decided to take a young person here who is new to the City, and what a informative afternoon we had. There is plenty to see and read about. There are also audio available so you can sit and listen to history. You can also dress up in Elizabethen wear (if... More

The offerings in this art gallery are interesting and quite impressive. Was a great visit for my teenagers as well. And we partook of lunch at the cafe where the food was remarkably tasty. I would recommend this as a stop to anyone visiting the area.

A small art gallery but has a few things on for children, the discovery room where every item on the carpet can be touched (very exciting for children who are desperate to touch painting but can't normally), a discovery room next the cafe, which again children and feel the sculptures. Also normally at reception there is some sort of activity... More

We decided to visit this museum as a third date day out. I had never been before. The location was perfect as I wanted to wander around Wolverhampton City centre also. There was plenty to see here, only one area was closed but we decided to do a return visit in the future. There seemed to be lots for families... More

Have visited here many times over the last couple of years and always enjoy the special exhibitions. The cakes in the café are some of the best in Wolverhampton and the Indian salad lunch platter is delicious and good value.
