Birmingham Stories

The Birmingham Stories website showcases artefacts from the city's collections and tells stories about its past. Digital galleries, movie clips and interactive quizzes are divided into four zones - Made in Birmingham; Workshop of the War; Great Inventions for Everyday Life; and Fascinating Objects. The website charts the history of manufacturing and industry in Birmingham right back to Medieval times when the burgeoning town was famous for its metalworking industries.
