Soho house is very old but also as lots to offer, it contains a collection of furniture and silver and other items. Best thing is the history of the house. You can take pictures inside, and on a fine day walk around the garden. Not very bid but nice. Allow about 2 Hours.

Home to Matthew Boulton and meeting place for the Lunar Society of the late 1700s. Now ran by Birmingham City Council it was interesting to view this well kept museum. The attendant on the front desk was welcoming but no staff to guide us or interact (actually preferable in our case) leaving us to explore the house alone. The area... More

A party of six ladies from our WI visited Soho House yesterday and what an interesting place it turned out to be. With no idea of what to expect we were all fascinated and pleasantly surprised to learn all about Matthew Boulton, his family and contemporaries. We had an excellent guide who was extremely knowledgeable and answered all our questions... More

The guided tour of the house was a real highlight - Julia found just the right balance between the history of the Bolton family and the artefacts in the various rooms, bringing it all to life in a most entertaining and informative fashion. Adjacent to the house is a modern cafe and exhibition centre plus a small garden that's well... More

As a massive fan of 18th century history I'd had Soho House on my list of places to visit for a while and was definitely not disappointed! The exhibition gallery is very informative, the site itself is beautiful and the tour of the house itself was so interesting. The tour guide had a wealth of knowledge that she imparted to... More

This is a charming museum with lots of interesting features and stories. But you must have a guide. Ours was excellent, very knowledgeable and able to tell the stories in an interesting and amusing manor. The tour took over an hour and every minute was fascinating. There's a good exhibition and tea rooms as well as a number of excellent... More

An afternoon was spent at the museum with a group of members of the Broseley Local History Society. We were given an excellent welcome and introductory talk by a BMAG enthusiast who was well up on the history of Matthew Boulton and the other members of the Lunar Society who used to meet there. We had time for a brief... More

Amazing and interesting room settings and displays in both house and gallery. Many beautiful objects. Entry to house by conducted tour ticket. Knowledgeable, enthusiastic guide (Shah). Only 10 mins from centre of Birmingham by 74 bus (every 4 mins). Adjacent gallery, shop and cafe entry free but check, as may not be open due to shortage of staff. Not to... More
