We've been here a number of times and particularly enjoyed the temporary exhibitions. The automatum exhibition was good but sadly the "brick" exhibition had to be paid for. This hadn't been mentioned on the website and left us disappointed.

A beautiful Victorian art gallery in the heart of Wolverhampton. I was delighted to visit at the time the Roy Lichtenstein exhibition was on - truly stunning paintings I had not seen before. There was also an exhibition by local craftmakers which was very interesting. Best of all, it's free. Would appeal to children too.

The museum is quite small, but has a good selection of exhibitions, which are constantly changing. There are plenty of interactive displays for young children as well as a well stocked gift shop. The staff are lovely and very helpful. Well worth a visit. Currently there is a brilliant exhibition about automata and visitors can turn the handles and watch... More

I visited the current exhibition of mechanical sculptures and automata, "A Curious Turn", yesterday, What a superb experience! Even though I went on my own, it was a lot of fun and very interesting too. I am an artist and school technician and appreciated both the artistic and quirky, ingenious, mechanical aspects of the whole thing; I also gained a... More

We visited the art gallery especially for the lego exhibition. My 4 year old son loves lego so we thought it would a great day for him. I didn't realise you had to pay especially for this excitibtion. Two adults 1 child and £10 later we made our way round. There's a total of 3 halls each with near enough... More

We made a special trip for the LEGO exhibition from Stratford where we were staying. It was ok but we expected to see more actual models and also bigger ones. To be honest we spent more time looking round the rest of the gallery. In my opinion not enough to hold the interest of the younger children.

Take the kids here when in Wolves, lots to see and plenty of interactive exhibits to keep the kids amused. A free way to kill a couple of hours

We used to go more often with the children but they took some of the sensory equipment away and put in more chairs for the cafe !! Very disappointed

It`s great to walk up the steps to this imposing building and being centrally located it can completely change a drab day. A good mix of ancient and modern with plenty of local interest and connection with the industrial heritage of the area. This industrial heritage has virtually gone but for some of us the memories remain. Just an idea... More
