Beautiful no charge art museum with unique art displays. We spent several hours and still could have stayed longer. Birmingham is so blessed with fantastic fine art collections. We ate lunch at Oscar's which was excellent both in food and service. The Gift shop has some unusal gift selections. This is a worthwhile venue to visit.
I recently visited the museum to look at the Barbie exhibit. It wasn't what I was expecting because it only showed what looked like living room settings through out the decades. I was expecting Barbie through the decades and how she has changed. I notice that Barbie had a large room and will be shown through some of 2020 as well. I was told by one of the staff that the museum is planning and exhibit for indigenous people in detail for about 3 rooms I believe. I am disappointed that the museum in my years of living and growing up in Birmingham, Alabama. I have never seen that much work or effort put into the details of black history connecting African history. The museum seems to actively represent other cultures over one culture (being African American, black, and African culture). African have a deep rooted history in the state of Alabama but it seems that our culture has been almost excluded in the Birmingham art museum. In speaking to one of your workers I asked if there would be anything in depth for black history month in February to June which is black music month and I was told that the museum only does the bare minimum. Which broke my heart since I am a lover of the arts. The museum as so many galleries inside to exhibit things from other countries, Christian religion and the way the white people live in the Victorian Era but I cannot go there to learn anything of my own culture but can learn almost everything about everyone else culture through the years in detail. The Birmingham art museum needs to do better in its black balling of African American culture first before giving an entire room to a doll.
