  • Found quite by accident in a nostalgic wander round central Birmingham, and couldn't resist. Went on the guided tour and found it absolutely fascinating. Original building, original machinery in full working order, and very atmospheric. Our guide Cornelius had worked there and clearly loves the place, so he gave us quality information non-stop, not just about coffin-making but about factory working conditions generally. Wouldn't have missed this for anything, and will definitely revisit next time I'm in Birmingham.
  • Great museum and tour guide. Really interesting and different. You can't go round without a guide so check the times before you come.
  • One of the best small museums I have visited. A fascinating insight into the workings of a small business which existed in the back streets of so many towns. Not at all spooky.
  • We have visited on a guided tour and a magic show. Really interesting place and friendly staff.
  • Peculiar museum, offers unusual but nice tour for little ones. The staff is friendly and welcoming.

Where to stay in Birmingham

To experience the best urban attractions available in Birmingham, book your lodgings in the pedestrianized city center.

Centrally located hotels offer stunning views of the city's skyline and numerous modern amenities, including luxurious spa centers and award-winning restaurants. Staying close to the center will put you in the thick of the action, near all of the city's famous bars and nightclubs.
