Join Us

Throughout Covid-19 the Friends have continued to work to support Birmingham Museums Trust. Artefacts (our quarterly magazine) and our Enewsletter continue to keep our Members up-to-date as we begin to organise events again. And despite the restrictions caused by Covid-19, Birmingham Museums Trust has a role to play, even with closed doors, and has adapted to the situation, supported local communities, and found innovative and creative ways to continue bringing the museums to you. As a result, we still need your support and we hope to increase the offer we are able to extend to you as soon as possible!
