The hall of memory is very small but worth a visit if you are passing for the rep, ICC or the library. It is open from 10 until 4pm and allows you to see the memorial to fallen soldiers from the first and second world wars. Pay your respects for 5 minutes.

Went inside the hall for first time to pay respects on armistice day having walked past many times. It is a small building near the central library with a pretty ceiling and marble effects. It is a place for quiet reflection. It could benefit from having more computer interaction. Open only during limited hours in the middle of the day... More

This is a beautiful area. Quiet and peaceful, giving time to reflect. There are memorials to specific people who lost their lives and in side there were poppy wreaths from all over the city. The flowers on the outside are gorgeous too.

You can pay tribute here to the people of Birmingham who sacrificed their lives. To be honest, this is more of a monument to the local people rather than a tourist attraction. The close proximity to the Library though makes it very easy to give it just a glance. When I was there, the weather was cloudy and when I... More

Called in while sightseeing around the area on 16/08/16, more info when walking inside otherwise not a lot to see apart from noticing the well maintained gardens & plants outside, free admission & photography allowed inside.

A quiet building in the middle of Centenary square. I've walked past it so many times and never knew what it was. Pay a visit and pay your respects to all the fallen heroes of world wars I and II.

Lovely, well-maintained place. Went inside out of curiousity and while there is not a lot to do inside, I have had a look around and paid my respects. Friendly staff as well.

It is a small memorial. Truly, nothing much to see there. It is really close to the library, so, don't waste your time just going to the memorial.
