Midlanders now have one more activity to add their isolation bucket list.

Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery have uploaded a virtual tour of their collections so people can access them from the safety of their homes.

Virtual visitors will be able to see four displays in total.

The first is the ‘The Round Room.’

If the museum stayed open this would have been the room visitors would see first.

This part of the museum dates back to 1885, when the building first opened.

Next, viewers can see the Art Galleries.

This part of the museum opened in 1919.

It showcases 700 years of art - spanning the 1300s, all the way through to the 1900s.

The next display tells us about the Staffordshire Hoard.

The hoard is the largest collection of Anglo-Saxon gold and silver treasure ever found.

Some of the pieces date back to the 6th and 7th centuries.

Finally, the museum has uploaded the ‘Birmingham: its people, its history’ gallery.
