At the heart of Birmingham

Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery is housed in a stunning Grade II* listed landmark building that has watched over the city’s Chamberlain and Victoria Squares since 1885, welcoming millions of visitors over the years.

The Museum has been partially or fully closed since March 2020. Following Covid-19, a programme of essential maintenance works had to be carried out across the Grade II* listed museum building and the wider Council House complex. This has included electrical work, upgrades to heating, roof repairs, and replacing lifts.

The continuing maintenance works programme means it is currently only partially open. The Gas Hall, part of Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery, is open for the Victorian Radicals exhibition.

We plan to reopen historic civic spaces across the Museum including the Round Room, Industrial Gallery and the Edwardian Tearooms in time for the summer holidays in 2024.
