Fodor's Expert Review Ikon Gallery

Birmingham Museum/Gallery
Free Fodor's Choice

Converted from a Victorian Gothic–style school, this gallery is among the city’s top venues for contemporary art from Britain and abroad and rightly so. The bright, white interior is divided into two main galleries, which host rolling exhibitions. There’s also a third space called The Tower, which hosts more site-specific shows. The bookshop is great, and there’s a very nice café on the ground floor of the building. Ikon exemplifies how Birmingham is embracing its past while moving very much into the future.
