With my wife touring her childhood memories came across the museum by chance. This is not to be missed, all as it was left by t he owners, won't add to that so I do not spoil things, go and see for yourself.

If you visit this lovely little museum make sure you take the tour. The galleries on the first and second floor are quite small and quite interesting, but the real experience is gained from visiting the manufacturing workshops which you only see on the tour. The museum was created based on a jewellery manufacturers workshops after the owner decided to... More

Interesting to be immersed in a beautifully preserved and atmospheric piece of local history. While my husband and I enjoyed the tour (you can only go on guided visits, so it's good to book in advance), my sister-in-law (a local who has been there before) felt that her second visit wasn't as good as the first as the guide was...

If you have any interest in the jewellery industry this is a lovely place to visit. I don't, but it was still nice. There are a few small galleries of exhibits, but it was mainly a guided tour of a jewellery manufacturer that was abandoned in the 80s, although a lot of it appears much older. Watch the opening times,... More

Had an informative guided tour (just the two of us and another couple). Just like stepping back into a small factory of the fifties. Also enjoyed the permanent exhibitions on two floors. Give yourself time for these as we were a little rushed to fit in the tour and the exhibitions before closing time at 5.00.

Second visit. Had to take my son and brother as my grandfather worked in the jewellery quarter. Etched in time the trip round the factory gives a real insite to life in the first half of the 1900,s and what a huge influence jewellery manufacture had on Birmingham and the thousands of people who worked in it. Definitely worth a... More

Not a place to take children, but any visiting grown up will be facinated by the tour given by the guides. Definately worth the time.
