  • This was a fascinating museum to visit, displaying much cultural artwork and pieces related to Birmingham! There are exhibits focusing on certain city aspects like clubbing, racism and film; the third was the most interesting with its section Wonderland. A special addition is the old cinema seats that visitors are invited to sit in, also a separate corridor shows museum objects from over time!
  • Can't wait to come back to see the completed renovation. The wilded front steps around the fountain were stunning. The exhibitions that were open were a great incite into the city's varied and colourful past.
