Museum of the Jewellery Quarter

Enjoy a guided tour around a real jewellery factory where little has changed since the early part of the last century, including a demonstration of jewellery making techniques at the jeweller’s bench.

For more than 80 years Smith and Pepper produced jewellery from this workshop, which was founded in 1899.

The ‘Earth’s Riches’ gallery showcases jewellery made from material found in the natural world, from whale tooth and coral to diamond and platinum. A wide range of original jewellery by local designer makers is sold through the museum shop, as well as a wide variety of gifts and books.

The Museum tells the story of jewellery production in Birmingham over the last 200 years as well as exploring the Jewellery Quarter as it is today. The temporary exhibition space provides a programme of workshops and events for all the family.

Entrance is £5 for visitors aged 16 and above.  Concessions £4.  Free for children.  The charge applies to the tour of the Smith and Pepper factory and the permanent galleries.  The shop, café and temporary exhibition space are free to enter.

Opening times: Tuesday to Saturday 10:30am – 4pm all year round, plus bank holiday Mondays. Closed Sundays and Mondays.

Address: 75 – 79 Vyse Street, Birmingham – just 75 metres from the Jewellery Quarter clock and 25 metres from the Jewellery Quarter Station.  Coach parking usually available in Branston Street.

Telephone: 0121 554 3598
