SPECIAL PLACES, GREAT IDEAS

At WAVE’s four venues, you’re never short of something to do, from exploring 300 years of art at Wolverhampton Art Gallery or enjoying a free family workshop at Bilston Craft Gallery, to stepping back 100 years at Bantock House Museum, or finding out more about the city’s rich history at Wolverhampton City Archives.

There’s also temporary exhibitions and displays, hands-on activities and special events, plus popular cafes and shops ideal for those unique gifts.

And admission to all WAVE venues is free too.
