During the industrial revolution, Birmingham was known for making jewellery. The current museum is situated in the old jewellery factory of Smith & Pepper, which closed in 1981.

This museum explains the whole process of making jewellery, from the metals used to their difference in value on the market. During the visit, you will discover the workshops and equipment that they used.


What did I like?

The show about the heating process of the metal displayed by the guide.

Why go?

-To know more about making jewellery.

-To do some shopping in one of the several jewellers in the quarter. My colleagues told me that it is a very good place to go when you want to buy an engagement ring for a small price.
