Selly Manor is a beautiful Tudor manor in the heart of historic Bournville. Alongside the medieval hall of Minworth Greaves, together these are two of Birmingham's oldest buildings and are surrounded by a lovely cottage garden. The museum is home to the Laurence Cadbury Collection of period furniture and domestic objects which bring these timber-framed buildings to life. The museum offers a range of exhibitions, talks and tours, special events, children's activities and is licensed for civil wedding ceremonies.
