GO Museums in Birmingham

Museums in Birmingham Birmingham has a rich industrial and commercial past and the many museums in the area keep a fascinating history well and truly alive.

Aston Hall [map], Trinity Road, Aston, was built in the first half of the 17th century and remains a local treasure. With original and ornate rooms that display a luxurious Jacobean décor, Sir Thomas Holte’s home is brimming with collections of furniture, art, textiles, and metal work from the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.

Stay close by and pay a visit to The Aston Manor Road Transport Museum [map], The Old Tram Depot, Witton Lane.

This 19th century refurbished tram depot is home to an impressive collection of commercial road transport vehicles. There’s also an on-site gift shop where you can pick up your own trolley bus memorabilia.

One of Birmingham’s biggest and brightest museums can be found at The Birmingham Museum and Gallery [map], Chamberlain Square.
Founded in 1885, the gallery’s collections cover fine art, archaeology, ethnography, natural history, social history, science, technology and industrial history.

The museum has a changing programme of temporary historical exhibitions so no matter how many times you visit you’ll always find something different.

Get on your bike and head to the National Motorbike Museum [map], Coventry Road, Bickenhill, Solihull, where you’ll find more than 700 motorcycles under one roof.

Enjoy life on the right side of the law with a visit to The West Midlands Police Museum [map], Sparkhill Station, Stratford Road, Sparkhill.

Here you’ll find a comprehensive study of the rich history of the force as well as a wide selection of artefacts and documents of historical importance. Visits are by strict appointment only.
