Title: Museum of the Jewllery Quarter
Title: Welcome

The Museum of the Jewellery Quarter is built around the preserved jewellery factory and office of the Birmingham, Smith & Pepper jewellery firm. When the Smith & Pepper Company closed in 1981, the building's entire contents were left where they lay on the last day of production creating an extraordinary 'time capsule' factory - little changed since the beginning of the century.

In addition to the factory, the Museum's galleries tell the story of the Quarter and the jeweller's craft which has been practised in this distinctive part of Birmingham for over 200 years, as well as exhibiting jewellery from all over the world. The museum even brings the story right up to date by showcasing jewellery made by some of the city's most exciting contemporary designers.
