An intriguing place - excellent displays - brilliant guides (who have work the the jewellery quarter). Has items of interest for all ages as well as an interactive "game" for children. Well worth a visit.

Fantastic glimpse into the past. A very interesting insight into the history of Birmingham jewellery trade and what it was like to work at Smith and Pepper. The guide was very knowledgeable and informative.

I enjoy these glimpses of the past. This museum doesn't disappoint. I love the fact that the old ways have been preserved and the original tools and machinery are still around to view.

Recommend group tour. As interesting to a Brummie as to a tourist. Apart from the general information each volunteer guide can add his or own perspective.

I'm pretty sure most of it would be tricky for a wheelchair user but it was a few years ago when I visited so please check with the museum. Jonathan
