Some great art and a wealth of information about the history of Coventry. The children loved it , with lots to do, esp[ecially in half term when they have extra exhibitions.

The free bit of this gallery is alright, I find art a bit crazy and don't 'get' a lot of it but I'm sure if you're an art fan you'd love it. We went especially for the dinosaur attraction and it was definitely not worth what we paid for it. One room of poor dinosaur models. Gutting. Oh well.

Walk around the City of Coventry gallery and you will appreciate the long and full history of this ancient city.The exhibits are well laid out and there are sounds of the periods.,From Medieval prosperity with its textile industries to the Victorian era and ribbon making and on in to the 20th century with engineering and manufacturing periods.There are several other galleries with art and natural history and peace and reconciliation. Well worth spending an afternoon here to understand what Coventry is all about.
