The new permanent Staffordshire Hoard Gallery at Birmingham Museum Art Gallery opened today.

The gallery displays treasures from the Hoard and offers visitors unique opportunities to explore the delicate craftsmanship used to create the gold and garnet items.

Additionally, the gallery explains the world of Anglo Saxon Mercia and the people who populated it.

There are also opportunities for younger visitors to gain a feel of life in the 7th Century by dressing up in the “Mead Hall” and playing games and listening to stories of these exciting times.
