Smethwick Heritage Centre & Museum offers a chance to explore Smethwick’s vast history. We are a volunteer run museum which also organises roadshows and events, normally free to the public, as well as specialist Talks & Plays which may incur a small charge to cover costs.
The Museum is situated in the former Lodge in Victoria Park, where numerous pieces of memorabilia are housed and displayed. This gives us the chance to see and remember Smethwick as it once was. We also depend upon stories and archives from those who remember Smethwick and are interested in its heritage.
Passionate about Smethwick?
Like to come along and lend a hand?
Whatever your background, whatever your skills, there are ways you can get involved:
We need enthusiastic people to man the desk. We need people to provide a warm welcome to visitors, to enjoy and share stories about the area, to reminisce about Smethwick.
There are research projects underway. We need people with skills to investigate the background to many of Smethwick’s industries, schools, etc
Perhaps you can help to sort and catalogue our many artefacts and photographs.
Maybe you can help us prepare and setup stands at our exhibitions.
We can always use more muscle to help us setup stands at our Roadshows, or just simply make refreshments!
All we need is just a few hours a week, usually between 11 am and 3 pm any day of the week. Add to that a touch of enthusiasm and a passion for Smethwick, then whatever your background, you can help us keep Smethwick’s history alive.
