The Friends is an independent registered charity, set up in 1931 to support the work of Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.  Over the years, this has extended to include nine museum sites that now make up the current Museums Trust. Find out more about who we are and what we do on the ‘About Us‘ page.

Our ‘Artefacts’ magazine is widely admired. You can read the current issue and past editions here.

We welcome your feedback and suggestions. Use the ‘Contact us’ page to tell us what we’re doing right or what we can improve on.
