Perhaps we called at a bad time of the year. There was nothing to see of the well known pop art collection, which was really disappointing. There was, however, a very interesting and nostalgic special exhibition of TV Puppetry. Part of the premises seemed to...More

Hi there The gallery is free. They sometimes have a special area of art or an exhibit where there may be a small fee. Entrance to most or often all is free. Birmingham also has a fabulous art gallery which is also free.
