Maybe we used the wrong entrance but we could not see what was where or what the gallery had to offer. Various routes were closed off as exhibitions were being rearranged. There must be some info about the gallery somewhere but we failed to find it. However we did stumble on the Roy Lichtenstein exhibition which was the objective of... More

I was walking back to the railway station and came unexpectedly across the Gallery. I had some time to kill and am so glad I did.

The gallery is worth a visit. It's easy to pop by the cafe for coffee or tea with friends. The food is all right, a varied selection, though nothing special. Service is slow, every time I have been, there's always been a line. There's a sitting room upstairs with tables which could be done up much nicer.

A first for us and a lovely place to visit. Not too big to take in and with a good cafe with a range of reasonably priced food.

Very interesting range of art on display from pop art, trading art and some very interesting modern material. Sculpture room full of interactive guidance and material such as poems that enhanced appreciation of the exhibits as well as informative descriptions.

It is easy to ignore the lesser known galleries and as is evidenced by a visit to our local Gallery that is the case. The cafe is very good too.

The perfect way to use a spare hour in Wolverhampton. It's the 2nd time I have had the pleasure. I really like the mix of historic and modern. Currently showing an interesting collection of Asian wares.

This is a superb gallery with very good permanent exhibitions as well as nationally famous visiting exhibitions. The venue is lovely, the staff very friendly and the café lovely. Situated in the centre of the city makes it easily accessable. Well worth a visit.
