Museum of the Jewellery Quarter

75-80 Vyse Street, Birmingham, B18 6HA 

The Museum of the Jewellery Quarter is built around a perfectly preserved jewellery workshop offering a unique glimpse of working life in Birmingham's famous Jewellery Quarter.

When the proprietors of the Smith & Pepper jewellery manufacturing firm retired in 1981 they simply ceased trading and locked the door, unaware they would be leaving a time capsule for future generations. Today the factory is a remarkable museum, which tells the story of the Jewellery Quarter and Birmingham's renowned jewellery and metalworking heritage. Explore this extraordinary time capsule on a lively guided tour. Watch live demonstrations at the jewellers' bench of the traditional skills of this fine trade, and discover what it was like to work here.

 


 

Opening times: Open Tuesday to Saturday (and Bank Holiday Mondays) 10.30am - 5.00pm

Telephone:  0121 348 8140
