The museum and art gallery is right in the heart of Birmingham in an impressive Victorian building. It is crammed with all sorts of stuff, most of it fascinating and some of it of international importance. It is staggering that entry is free. The cafe is good as well.

Went to see the Saxon hoard and the Leonardo cartoons. They were excellent, intelligently presented with useful further information for non-experts.
But it is the pre-Raphaelite collection that always draws me back. It is such a privilege to live in a city with such a jewel.
