People Places Pride: Private Tour of the Birmingham Museum Collection Centre

February 13 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join Birmingham Civic Society for the first in our centenary year series of People,Places,Pride events:

  • A private, guided tour of the Museum Collections Centre, the storage facility for Birmingham Museums Trust.

The 1.5-hectare site houses all of the objects that aren’t currently on display. Among the thousands of objects stored are steam engines, sculptures, an entire collection of Austin, Rover and MG motorcars, a red telephone box and even a Space Hopper. The contrasting mix of objects and behind-the scenes atmosphere makes the Centre an intruiging place to explore.

Over tea and coffee, the guide will welcome everyone to the site, followed by a facilitated tour of the main warehouse area where you will be free to explore at your leisure for two hours.

This event is open to members for £10pp and non members, £15pp.
