Research and Cultural Collections

The University of Birmingham has thousands of objects cared for by the Research and Cultural Collections department with regular activities, events and exhibitions for staff, students and the public throughout the year. 

In order to minimise the risk to staff, students and our wider community, the University of Birmingham campus has moved to restricted operations. During this time University staff will be working remotely and the majority of buildings and facilities within the campus will be closed.

This means that our current exhibition and our wider collections displays will not be accessible to the public until further notice.
