Great facilities

We have a fully accessible building with two lifts, and accessible toilets on every level. Our exhibition spaces are free of charge and our building offers a variety of seating areas; with free Wi-Fi throughout.

Feel free to browse the rest of our artistic programme to complement your visit. Or maybe enjoy the splendour of our Cannon Hill Park surroundings, or wander over to our neighbours at Birmingham Nature Centre.

Food & drink

MAC has a large café and bar serving hot and cold snacks. We ask our patrons not to consume their own food or drink on the premises. However, on occasion and only by prior arrangement, we may be able to provide educational groups with a private room for lunches. We can also provide meal deals and lunch packages at a good rate.

Excellent location

Situated just 1.5 miles from the city centre, and directly opposite Edgbaston County Cricket Ground, we're close to many major motorways and routes through the city.
