  • Magnificent building which has just been refurbished. Only partially open (free entry), but has enough to keep you interested for an hour or so. Very inclusive exhibits about the people that made Birmingham and a really interactive exhibit on the history of the city’s cinemas. Lovely looking Edwardian cafe and large gift shop. Can’t wait for the rest of it to be finished! (Took one star off as I couldn’t read some of the descriptions on the walls, as many were too far away to read and the type was small.)
  • Quite a nice place to spend time. You can marvel at different historic & scientific displays. Very well organized & curated. Will recommend spending half a day here
