As part of the national Dying Matters week, take the opportunity to explore objects and artworks left to Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery by supporters in their wills, or purchased using a legacy.

Some of the highlights of Birmingham’s important regional collection were acquired in this way, including the Stanley Sellers collection of studio pottery in recent years, numerous Pre-Raphaelite and Birmingham School pieces, and the significant John Feeney Bequest.

For more information on Birmingham's Dying Matters events, visit the Brum YODO website.

Places are free but must be pre-booked by emailing Rosie Barker on Rosie.Barker@BirminghamMuseums.org.uk.
