Reel Culture: University of Birmingham's Cultural Life on Film

From Old Master paintings to historical scientific instruments and orchestral concerts, the University of Birmingham is alive with culture. A short walk through campus takes in a world-renowned art gallery, a superb geology museum, a beautiful botanical garden, exceptional rare books and archives and many other fascinating teaching and research collections.

The museums, collections, archives and performances are here for everyone to enjoy, but they also play a crucial role in research, teaching and student employability. 

Conservators, archivists, curators and academics work alongside other University staff to ensure we preserve our material for future generations and also make it accessible for students, staff and University visitors. So why not take a peek behind the scenes of our marvellous cultural assets.
