Lovely Museum with helpful and friendly staff. The cumbersome loom machine was fascinating to produce medal ribbons. The Victorian moustache cup did make us chuckle😊Loved the mother and children monument by Gary Galpin. Excellent gift shop😊

We were in Coventry and had a couple of hours to kill. Glad we found this gem - it kept the family amused and interested and we could have stayed longer in the end!

Visited to attend a synth music demo. Interesting music though quite loud and would have been quite alarming for those not expecting the event to be on. The art gallery and museum are always a pleasure to visit with plenty to see for all ages.

Went primarily to see the Cezanne they had on exhibition. It was terrific and every thing I thought it would be. In addition there were several other exhibitions to see which I did not expect and one was a Turner, my favourite artist. Well worth...More

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.
