Museum of the Jewellery Quarter - Factory Guided Tour

The museum is open all year round, but entrance to the factory is by guided tour only (Allow 1 hour for the tour).

Admission Chargeable

In 1981 Smith & Pepper jewellery manufacturers ceased trading and locked the door, unaware they would be leaving a time capsule for future generations.

Tools were left on benches; overalls hung on coat hooks; and teacups alongside jars of Marmite and jam on the shelf! Even the décor had more in common with early 20th century trends than a thriving business in the early 1980s.

Today the factory is a remarkable museum, which tells the story of the Jewellery Quarter and Birmingham’s renowned jewellery and metalworking heritage.

With live demonstrations of traditional jewellery-making skills, experience of what it was like to work in this noisy and busy workshop.
