Discover more about our museum, collections, and surrounding gardens
We offer a range of talks and tours at Selly Manor, including an hour-long guided tour which examines the history of the buildings and their beautiful period furniture collection. On the 30-minute Bournville Walking Tour you can retrace philanthropist George Cadbury’s steps around his famous garden village. The tour includes a visit to the village green, explanations about the many public buildings created for residents and a look at the architecture of many of its houses. To find out more, visit our adult group visits page.
In 2016 Selly Manor Museum is celebrating 100 years since it became a museum. As part of our celebrations we are launching a competition for children aged 11 and under from across the West Midlands. The competition is to design a medieval banner which will be made and displayed at the museum. This is a fantastic opportunity for children to be inspired by this beautiful and historic museum, get creative with some great ideas and have the chance for their work to made and seen by thousands of people!
All the children have to do is draw and colour-in their design onto the form, which is in the link below. We’ve given some top tips to help and would encourage children to be as creative as they can.
For an entry form and full details click on the link below, we have also supplied a document stating the terms and conditions.
