Enjoyed looking around on a fairly quiet afternoon, everyone else was out in the sun. Was expecting more of the history of Birmingham and its manufacturing. A great and diverse art collection plus some very good special exhibitions.

Came to see Dippy and he didn’t disappoint but unfortunately we found the Edwardian Tea rooms a great disappointment! The children’s dinosaur meal didn’t even include a drink and the ice cream came with main course. We didn’t book a table as the website advised...More

Booked online for the Dippy the dinosaur exhibition. Tickets are free, donations in the museum are appreciated. Lots to see and experience. There are activities for children dotted throughout the museum meaning there is something for everyone. Well worth a visit before the exhibition moves...More

There are a number of car parks quite close, the nearest is the multi storey on Cambridge Street, less than 5 minutes walk away. It is quite expensive during the day. We use the train as it's cheaper.

I'm not very disabled but I have difficulty walking and I found the museum very disabled friendly. The lifts are good and there's masses of space for wheelchairs
