Join us as we take you on a visual journey, exploring how Birmingham changed from being a City of Empire in 1889 to the City of Diversity it is today.

The exhibition includes personal stories of migration and settlement by those who came to Birmingham and put down roots in the city.

In the year that sees the city host the Commonwealth Games, From City of Empire to City of Diversity explores how Birmingham’s connections to the British Empire have shaped it’s past, present and future.
