Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery (BMAG) first opened in 1885. It is housed in a Grade II* listed city centre landmark building. There are over 40 galleries to explore that display art, applied art, social history, archaeology and ethnography.

Galleries to Visit

The art gallery is famous for its Pre-Raphaelite paintings, which are part of the largest public Pre-Raphaelite collection in the world.

Discover the fascinating story of the Staffordshire Hoard, the largest hoard of Anglo-Saxon gold ever found, in its own dedicated gallery.

The Birmingham History collections feature prominently in the ‘Birmingham: its people, its history’ gallery, which covers the majority of the 3rd floor.

You can also see art and objects spanning seven centuries of European and World history and culture. This includes Greeks & Romans and Ancient Egypt.

Exhibitions

In addition to the permanent galleries there is a diverse exhibition programme that offers a series of changing exhibitions throughout the year.
