Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art | Middlesbrough, Yorkshire

Middlesborough Institute of Modern Art (or mima!), is a contemporary art gallery based in the heart of Middlesborough. If you're looking for fun and free things to do in the area, why not pay it a visit?

The mima was launched in 2007, but its relatively new status doesn't impact the standard of work on show.

Middlesborough Institute of Modern Art is now run in partnership with Teeside University, and is home to fine and applied art from 1900 to the present day.

The mima is closed on Mondays, but is open every other day of the week. It's open 10.00 - 4.30pm and is open until 19.00 on Thursday evenings.

Entrance to the gallery is free and there are always new and exciting exhibitions on show. Why not check it out next time you're near?

Concessions: Free entry
