Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery (BMAG) first opened in 1885. It is housed in a Grade II* listed city centre landmark building featuring over 40 galleries that display art, applied art, social history, archaeology and ethnography. BMAG is currently closed while essential electrical upgrade work of Birmingham’s Council House complex takes place. It will partially reopen seven days a week, from 10am – 5pm, from April 28, 2022. To mark the reopening, BMAG is being handed over to some of Birmingham’s most exciting creatives. Animating the Round Room and Industrial Gallery, while the rest of BMAG remains closed for essential work, are Birmingham Music Archive, Fierce Festival, Flatpack Projects, Kalaboration Arts and working in collaboration with Birmingham Museums - Don’t Settle in partnership with Beatfreeks. Having been invited to respond to the theme of ‘This Is Birmingham’ visitors can expect an exquisite collision of new exhibitions and live events as well as space to join in and contribute. The Edwardian Tearooms will also be an exciting hub of activity. Bringing together a striking combination of stories that bridge popular culture and global struggles the vibrant new displays will share different encounters and experiences, playfully turning the theme of ‘This Is Birmingham’ on its head by asking the question, ‘What’s your Birmingham?’ Visitors will be encouraged to explore and contribute to the many different stories that make Birmingham the fantastic city that it is. Birmingham City Council’s essential electrical works programme will continue at BMAG until 2023/4. For the work to take place, over 36,000 items of Birmingham’s collections have been moved into safe storage. From April 28 it is planned that only the Round Room, Industrial Gallery, Edwardian Tearooms, Bridge Gallery, Gallery 10 and BMAG shop will be open. A special exhibition will also launch in the Gas Hall in May 2022, further details of which will be announced later. All other galleries can still be explored online via the BMAG virtual tour.
