To be honest, I am not a huge fan of contemporary art, however, they also have collections of well know artists such as Turner, Constable and Renoir. Actually, I enjoyed the visit very much.

Okay - so you may not be fan of contemporary art but whether you are or not, this is a building to inspire. Its quasi-Brutalist architecture may not be to everyone's taste, but it abounds in creative space and it's free to get in. What's...More

The exhibition is relatively small but it provides a nice roam of four levels. The rooftop area was closed. However, overall with free admission you can’t go wrong.

This was rubbish. Most of the exhibitions were closed and what was open was crap. The rooftop terrace was alright, although the skyline of Walsall is enough to make you top yourself. Still probably the best thing in Walsall.
