Lovely classical-style building in the heart of Birmingham, amazing collection of especially Pre-Raphaelite paintings. Also very informative display of part of the Staffordshire Hoard of Saxon gold (the better half too). Free entry and helpful staff. Not to be missed.

There's a lot to see here: many good pictures, not least the Pre-Raphaelites; the impressive Staffordshire Hoard; and the Birmingham History Galleries. The lay out is good and the staff are friendly and helpful

The art collection was lovely, but the thing that really won me over was the beautiful Edwardian tea room!
