Entertaining at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery

The 19th-century Grade II listed building of Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery offers a magnificent setting for entertaining and corporate events.

Round Room

In recent years the museum has played host to a glittering array of VIPs including world leaders and members of the Royal Family.

Excellent dining facilities are provided in the Edwardian Tea Room, one of the most beautiful interior spaces in Birmingham. This spectacular dining hall can seat up to 140 guests for a formal dinner or 200 for a buffet. When combined with the adjoining Industrial Gallery and Round Room it is possible to cater for up to 500 guests.

Edwardian Tea Room

The Museum and Gallery is just a few minutes walk away from the city’s train stations, midway between New Street Station and the major conference facilities at the International Convention Centre and National Indoor Arena.
