Fodor's Expert Review Barber Institute of Fine Art

Birmingham Museum/Gallery
Free Fodor's Choice

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. The museum also has a lively program of temporary exhibitions; recent highlights have included an exploration of Dutch artist Jan Steen’s Old Testament scenes. The museum is 3 miles from the city center; to get here, take a train from New Street Station to University Station, or jump on a 61 or 63 bus.
