The Herbert Art Gallery & Museum is a stunning, award-winning venue situated in the cultural heart of Coventry.

Visitors can enjoy the multi-sensory, interactive permanent galleries that cover everything from Coventry's history to modern art via natural history. There are around 6,000 works in the Herbert's visual arts collection, the earliest of which is an Elizabethan portrait attributed to Lucas de Heere. British life and landscape feature in canvases by LS Lowry, Stanley Spencer, David Bomberg, Paul Nash and George Shaw. The Gallery also collects new and recent art in a variety of media and styles, and among its latest acquisitions are works by Prunella Clough, Cornelia Parker and Mona Hatoum. It is currently developing a collection of art on the themes of conflict, peace and reconciliation. The four temporary exhibition spaces have hosted collections from museums around the country including the British Museum and the V&A.
