The Museums Collections Centre in Nechells has brought together 80 per cent of Birmingham Museums and Art Gallery’s stored collections under one roof.

The 1.5 hectare site, close to Duddeston Station, holds hundreds of thousands of objects. Among the collections are steam engines, sculptures, an entire collection of Austin, Rover and MG motor cars, a red phone box and even a Sinclair C5.

Visiting the Museums Collection Centre

The contrasting mix of objects and the behind-the-scenes atmosphere at the collections centre make it an intriguing place to explore.

At the moment the Museums Collection Centre is only open to the public on open days and for pre-arranged tours and study days. 

There are free open afternoons from 1.30pm - 3.30pm on the last Friday of every month. These must be booked in advance. Guided tours are also available by arrangement on other days. Please phone +44 (0)121 348 8231 for more information or to book.

The MCC also hosts a number of Study Days that focus on different aspects of the collections. Check the What’s On page for the latest listings.
