Brum Brum Museum Collection Centre
Enter for free and “Travel” through time at Birmingham’s Museum Collection Centre.
The Museum Collection Centre is rarely open to the public and home to the city’s historical and cultural collection, from sculpture to steam engines; toys to costumes. This year’s free open day focus is on our transport collection. Stroll down aisles of objects steeped with history, join in family fun activities, and see objects that aren’t currently on display at Birmingham Museums Trust sites. See classic cars, bicycle, motorbikes, toys, shoes, sculpture and much more! This is a great opportunity to look behind the scenes and learn how we care for the collection.
We advise visitors to wear sensible shoes and bring along the option of warmer clothing as temperatures can vary.
Also on offer
• Meet the experts – explore objects that aren’t usually out on display at the MCC and meet the teams who look after and manage the store.
• Vintage bus service between city centre and Museum Collection Centre
• Family storytelling
• Food stalls
• Family activities & games
• Model trains
