“Great collection!”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

Very big variety of artifacts. Worth visiting both alone and with family. It shows another side of Coventry through the centuries + it's free!

“If you haven't been, you must go....”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

I've visited The Herbert Museum on several occasions. This is a great place to take the family; there is so much to see and lots of interactive activities to keep kids entertained. Entrance is free, but there are temporary exhibitions which you can visit for a fee. The exhibition of the Coventry City Football Club FA Cup final win in 1987, and the dinosaur exhibition are two excellent examples from this year. A great day out.....

“Great Place to Visit!”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

Everything! The displays were interesting and the art gallery most interesting to me as I have one myself in Akaroa, New Zealand.

“good for kids”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Small modern museum/art gallery with plenty of interactive displays for children. Adults will probably only spend an hour or so there, there are not that many paintings on display but I did enjoy all the old objects, plenty of opportunities to reminisce.

“good lunch”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

What a contrast to the cathedral. Warm and friendly staff -free entry so of course we donated. Really nice hot food for lunch. Enjoyed looking around the galleries.
