The Stafford Hoard is an amazing exhibit from AD600/700 - a truly remarkable find. This is well exhibited and worth a visit on its own. We viewed a good history of the city of Birmingham.

The exhibitions are worth seeing as is the cultural art displayed around the building. Local talent have work hanging up at various times which I think is a very nice touch. Its worth 2 hours of your time visiting this Gallery

They moved it to London? A shame I agree :(
I know this Gallery has a great collection of Pre-Raphaelite art. Does it also cover the later painters who are sometimes thought of as Pre-Raphaelites -- Burne-Jones, Waterhouse, Alma-Tadema, Lord Leighton, Godward, Albert Moore, Frank Dicksee, etc?
