The Coffin Works
13-15 Fleet Street, Birmingham, B3 1JP
Birmingham's newest, award-winning independent museum The Coffin Works is a truly unique space exploring the social history and cultural changes that have influenced a once highly-prestigious Jewellery Quarter firm.
The shelves and workbenches at Newman Brothers are full of original stock and tools of the trade. With the original machinery working again, you can truly experience how this old Jewellery Quarter firm once operated on a day-to-day basis, producing some of the world's finest coffin furniture, including the fittings for the funerals of Churchill, Chamberlain and the Queen Mother. Travel back in time to experience how Newman Brothers operated during its heyday, entering a 1960s time capsule where the sounds of the day mingled with the industrial sounds of a working factory.
Opening times: 10.45am - 4pm
