There is now a slim-line walkway from Victoria Square to the main entrance. However visitors requiring lift access will find themselves blocked from getting there if they approach via Victoria Square, but don't worry there is a detour in place that will only take a few minutes to walk!
If you are approaching Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery from Victoria Square please head to the right of the Council House. You then need to turn left into Eden Place (Starbucks is on the corner). At the end of Eden Place turn left again onto Edmund Street.
The Gas Hall lift entrance is on the right. This entrance allows you to access all parts of the building.
We apologies for the inconvenience of you having to take this detour. We are worth taking those extra few minutes to get to though!
