Birmingham Museums Trust
“To learn about the city, discover new sites and understand the heritage of Birmingham”
Birmingham Museums Trust is an independent, educational charity established in 2012 to manage the city’s museum collections and venues.
Who are Birmingham Museums Trust?
Birmingham Museums Trust has a charitable objective to advance education by maintaining and promoting Birmingham’s museums and galleries along with their outreach programmes and research. They want everyone – residents and visitors of Birmingham – to appreciate and enjoy the arts, history, science and technology the city has to offer. The nine venues managed by the Trust are Birmingham Museum Art Gallery, Thinktank, Aston Hall, Blakesley Hall, Sarehole Mill, Soho House, Weoley Castle, Museum of the Jewellery Quarter and the Museum Collections Centre. The Trust cares for over 800,000 objects which are stored and displayed in these nine unique venues, and they have over 1 million visitors to the Museums every year.
If successful, what will you use your LoveBrum funding for?
Birmingham Museums Trust would like to use the funding to help bring their WALK Birmingham project to life. The project aims to engage the people of Birmingham with the fascinating history of their city, whilst helping to support citizens to have an active lifestyle.
The Museums Trust will work with Birmingham’s former city archaeologist, Mike Hodder, and his team to create a book of twenty walks that showcase twenty more reasons to LoveBrum! Birmingham has an incredible heritage but these sites are often described as hidden gems that Birmingham residents don’t even know about. Walks of varying lengths will be created to help the residents of the City to discover Birmingham!
