Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery is temporarily reopening ahead of this summer’s Commonwealth Games.
Five of the museum’s 40 displays are open to visitors with three displays, We Are Birmingham, SaVĀge K’lub and Wonderland: Birmingham’s Cinema Stories, presented as part of Birmingham 2022 Festival.
The museum shut in October 2020 for major rewiring work and will close again in December ahead of a full reopening scheduled for 2024.
Birmingham Museums Trust Co-CEOs Sara Wajid and Zak Mensah said the reopening marks “a new phase of cultural confidence for Birmingham”.
“The new displays honour the contribution of activists, reformers and creative pioneers. This is a chance to welcome old friends and new visitors from all over the world.”
