This museum is an underrated gem. Their summer event series - Art on the Rocks is a great way to spend a summer Friday night with art, beverages, and lots of people watching.

This may not be the most precious art museum in the country but it is FREE to park and FREE to get into the museum. We were in town for the weekend and looking for things to do when we saw the museum had an interactive area for kids. We have two year old twins and normally an art museum would be off limits but we took turns playing with the kids in the very nice kids area while the other one inspected the exhibits. My wife and I were impressed with the range of art work on display and it was a good way to spend a coupld of hours. The museum is located near enough to the Zoo, Vulcan Park, and the Gardens to include as part of the day.

The BMoA has had some great exhibits over the years and is worth the trip... The permanent exhibits are fantastic and the special exhibits are presented to perfection...

Admission is free to enter this museum which is a wonder in itself in this day and age. The inside is gorgeous with wall paint complementing the actual art. I would highly suggest a visit to this Art Museum to anyone visiting Birmingham. A great variety of art.
