Open Afternoon at the Museum Collection Centre FREE
Open afternoons usually book out at least three months in advance so please book early to avoid disappointment.
The Museum Collection Centre is a 1.5 hectare site that holds 80 per cent of Birmingham Museums’ stored collections under one roof. Among the thousands of objects stored here are steam engines, sculptures, an entire collection of Austin, Rover and MG motor cars and even a red phone box. It is not open to the public except by arrangement.
The open afternoons take place on the last Friday of the month at 1.30pm. Please arrive promptly for the start. The tours last for up to 2 hours.
The tour will allow you to see a vast range of objects, often with a real focus on Birmingham and the West Midlands. The contrasting mix of objects and the behind-the-scenes atmosphere at the collection centre make it an intriguing place to explore and discover more about museum stores.
There is a free car park at the Museum Collection Centre.
