Fodor's Review

Part of the University of Birmingham, the museum has a small but astounding collection of European paintings, prints, drawings, and sculpture, including works by Botticelli, Van Dyck, Gainsborough, Turner, Manet, Monet, Degas, Van Gogh, and Magritte. They also have a lively program of temporary exhibitions; recent highlights have included "degenerate art" banned by the Nazis in the 1930s and the aesthetic heritage of the Roman Empire in Britain. The museum is 3 miles from the city center; to get here, take a train from New Street Station south to University Station or Bus 61, 63, or 98 from the city center.
