Learn at your own pace

Pop in during opening hours to enjoy our free heritage exhibitions and art installations and learn about the building and the wider Jewellery Quarter. We can also sign post you to the other museums and the wider heritage offer of the area. 

Mon-Fri 10am-3.30pm

For our younger visitors we have a range of free activities to help them explore the displays and building. Just help yourself!

Let us guide you

Tours of the complete building and onto the rooftop are available by special arrangement for groups outside our on-site College opening hours, and for the public on special event days. For group bookings to explore the whole four-storey building please email: [email protected].

Book a learning experience

If you are a school or community group looking to arrange a heritage or craft learning experience at The Hive, or an outreach session where we come to you, please get in contact with our Community Outreach & Learning Manager Suzanne Carter [email protected] to talk about your requirements. We can develop a bespoke package for you.

We have joined forces with two other local heritage providers to create a full or half day package for schools.
