Wolverhampton Art Gallery

With its family friendly displays, Wolverhampton Art Gallery welcomes visitors to explore 300 years of art; from delightful Georgian paintings and Pop Art to thought provoking contemporary pieces.

Wolverhampton Art Gallery aims to provide a friendly, accessible and inclusive environment for visitors to explore art at their leisure. A key aspect of our approach to displaying these collections is the idea of interactivity, and we aim to provide plenty of hands-on activities to challenge, entertain and inform.
