Birmingham Updates is proud to announce a content partnership with Birmingham Museums. The partnership will provide a fascinating glimpse into Birmingham’s rich and vibrant past and showcase the city’s world class museum collections.
Through their nine venues Birmingham Museums celebrates the city’s contribution to culture, the arts, science and industry, and showcases the people who have contributed to our city and made it what it is today.
Venues include Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery, where you can see world-class art and the mesmerising Staffordshire Hoard, or visit the Mini Museum for kids and enjoy a relaxing meal in the impressive surroundings of the Edwardian Tearooms. Then there’s Thinktank, Birmingham Science Museum, which offers a fun-packed day out for all the family, with steam engines, talking robots, a planetarium and an outdoor science garden.
Other sites span hundreds of years of history including the fascinating Museum of the Jewellery Quarter offering, a unique glimpse of what working life was like in Birmingham’s famous Jewellery Quarter Sarehole Mill, famous for inspiring author J.R.R Tolkien and Aston Hall, one of the last great Jacobean houses to be built.
As if that wasn’t enough, other venues include Blakesley Hall, Soho House, Weoley Castle and the Museum Collection Centre which houses much of the city’s incredible collection, open for monthly afternoon tours where you can discover hidden gems.
