Galleries closed

Our galleries remain closed.

The Barber Institute’s galleries remain closed in line with the current national coronavirus lockdown in England. We hope to be able to reopen when guidelines permit. Please see the current restrictions here. Meanwhile, please enjoy our online activities and digital access to the collection.

The Art Ticket system is not currently available and we are not releasing tickets for visits. Parts of the building may be open for University of Birmingham academic teaching and related activities, but there is currently no public access.

Please check this page regularly for updates on when the Barber galleries will reopen and when it will be possible to make bookings again.
