A fascinating gallery with so much in every corner. Very helpful staff and plenty for the kids. This is certainly one of the better galleries and worth a couple of hours at least.

The Herbert in Coventry is a museum that has a modern approach. Centrally located and easy to get to, I would say it is a "must see" when in Coventry. The exhibitions change, but there is always an interesting twist!

Always great exhibitions here and free too! Last one I saw in August was relating to childhood toys and games. Brought back lots of wonderful memories of years gone by. Lovely gift shop too.

... well for a 60 year old! A true walk back in time with so many things I remember seeing and using, now confined to history. All well displayed with good write ups or commentaries.

With the gallery on our left, we took the second right turn and at the end of that road is an open air car park. 5 - 6 minutes walk back to the gallery.
