Heritage Open Day Events at Birmingham Museums 9th - 12th September

Birmingham Museums and Art Gallery is participating in Heritage Open Days once again this year with several free guided tours and a chance to see the Blakesley Hall attics!

Heritage Open Days celebrates England’s architecture and culture. It provides visitors with a unique opportunity to explore and enjoy sometimes hidden, often curious and always interesting places in English cities, towns and villages. Heritage Open Days also includes tours, events and activities that focus on local architecture and culture.

There will be costumed guided tours of the attics at Blakesley Hall on September 11th and 12th. The attics are not normally open to the public. It is an opportunity to see where the servants would have slept and where food would have been stored. Find out about Heritage Open Days at Blakesley Hall.

There will also be costumed guided tours of the Museum of the Jewellery Quarter on Sept 9th, 10th and 11th. Find out about Heritage Open days at the MJQ.

There is a free guided tour of the Weoley Castle ruins on 2pm 10th September. Find out about Heritage Open Day at Weoley Castle.

There is also an opportunity to enjoy free tours of the Museum Collections Centre Sept 9th and Sept 10th. As one of the country's biggest museum stores, the Museum Collections Centre houses an incredible amount and range of objects - there's something different around every corner to intrigue or spark off old memories. Places are free but booking is required. Find out about Heritage Open Days at the MCC.

Aston Hall will also be offering a weekend of family activities and there will be guided walks at Sarehole Mill on September 11th and 12th.

Established in 1994, Heritage Open Days is England’s biggest and most popular voluntary cultural event. Last year the event attracted around 1 million visitors. English Heritage provides the central co-ordination for this national event.
