Known chiefly for its collection of pre-Raphaelite paintings (including works by Ford Maddox Brown, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Edward Burne-Jones, and Holman Hunt), the gallery also houses exceptional paintings by English watercolor masters from the 18th century. There is also a museum section with an Egyptian mummy, plus tools and artifacts 400,000 years old. The BMAG is instantly recognized by its "Big Brum" clock tower.
