Nav's Gallery Report: Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery

Another gallery I visited last week was the Museum of Art Gallery in the heart of Birmingham's city centre on Chamberlain's Square. The museum boasts their extensive collections of 500,000 pieces dating back 200,000 years to present day.

The part of the gallery that most interested me was the 'History Of Birmingham' section.

Immerse yourself in over 500 years of life, passion, strife and achievement. In the iconic new 'Birmingham, its people, its history' galleries visitors can explore the city's global heritage from medieval times and the industrial revolution, through to the World Wars - to the technology-led life of the 21st century.

The exhibition gives the audience a sense of pride about the city and how the people and place have contributed globally. The gallery experience is suitable for all ages as it offers an interactive experience with hands-on activities which can be enjoyed by all the family.

The exhibition is an in depth look into the life of Birmingham though the years, from entrepreneurial migrants, world wars, to influential people such as Michael Boulton and how they contributed to society thus affecting how we live today.

The part that most interested me was the kinds of clothing they wore throughout the years, which look miles apart from the clothing we wear today.

Overall I think the exhibition is a must see for people from Birmingham and visitors to the city as they can explore and discover the wonderful city of Birmingham.
