Wednesbury Museum and Art Gallery
Wednesbury Museum is Sandwell’s Museum and Art Gallery. It is a purpose built Victorian museum, housing collections which include fine art paintings, old toys, one of the world’s largest collections of Ruskin pottery, local history displays and our Nostalgia Rooms showcasing everyday objects from the 60s and 70s. There is also a changing programme of temporary exhibitions and activities to run alongside them as well as a lively programme of events for all ages and school holiday fun.
Over the coming months we will be offering a number of open days which we will advertise several weeks in advance. Visits will be by pre-booked timed ticket although entrance on most occasions will be free.
