This is very nice gallery. Has plenty to see and the kid were able to play with some costumes and colouring pages. Overall it was a nice afternoon as its not that big.

This museum is great for young children, plenty of things to touch, try on and generally mess around with. They do plenty of activities during school holidays and its really educational and interesting. The building itself is beautiful and very close to Coventry Cathedral and other places of interest. Best of all its free.

Lots of good art work from a wide range of era. Well displayed and explained. Museum section equally interesting and well displayed. Cafe good although it had managed to run out of soup by 1pm and few sandwiches/panini left.

The history of Coventry is compact but hugely impressive and well worth a half day visit - we have also been there for touring exhibits and they are always worth half a day on their own.

Free entry to a place well worth visiting. We visited with friends and took our daughter to the Lego exhibition on the second floor. Ground floor gives you the gift shop, café and the Lady Godiva room beyond that. Coventry has more to offer within the ring road than you think.
