  • Love here so much! I didn't expect inside Birmingham University there is such nice art gallery. More surprisingly, two Monet and Van Gogh's original paintings on exhibition for public. Nice and comfortable environment, a wonderful place you can spend half day in it.
  • Marvelous - one very good example of practically everything. And a lovely building. Small enough to take everything in but some really important pieces. Slightly dislike the more modern stuff - as Lady Barber would too.
