The Pen Room

Situated in the Argent Centre, on the edge of the Jewellery Quarter, just a few minutes walk from the city centre and Brindley Place, The Pen Room is one of Birmingham’s best kept secrets.

It is a privately owned museum dedicated to celebrating and preserving Birmingham’s heritage as a global centre of pen-making. With fascinating exhibits from the great pen makers of the area and a wealth of well-presented pictures and information from the archives, it is a museum that truly captures the essence of its subject.

There are lots of activities to try, and a chance to try out historic pens, ensuring that all ages will enjoy a visit. What really makes it special are the staff whose knowledge, enthusiasm and friendly welcome set the pen room apart.

Because of its location, it’s easy to combine a visit to the Pen Room with a stroll around the fascinating Jewellery Quarter, with its excellent selection of shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants.
