Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery (BMAG) are hard at work on their new public galleries. The project – which is costing nearly £10 million – will see an overhaul of their existing building and the creation of new gallery spaces, telling the story of the history of Birmingham.
It’s a similar project to the one taking place at the Museum of Bristol, which also seeks to tell the story of the history of the city. I worked with the Bristol team recently on the text that will sit alongside the interpretation of their story and I wonder if I should perhaps see if BMAG are interested in finding out more about museum text in a similar way.
In the meantime, there’s an article all about the developments at BMAG on Museum [Insider].
