Selly Manor Museum

Selly Manor Museum is in the heart of Bournville village and is a focus for events, activities, educational visits and weddings.  There are two ancient timber-framed buildings open to everyone at the museum, both of which were moved into Bournville by George Cadbury in the early 1900’s. Selly Manor dates back to 1327 and was moved from Selly Oak in 1914 to save it from being demolished. Minworth Greaves is even older, possibly dating back to 1250. Both buildings are surrounded by a beautiful Tudor garden of flowers, herbs and vegetables.

Trust residents are admitted to Selly Manor free of charge.

Educational Visits

Selly Manor is the ideal venue for a school trip and has gained the Learning Outside the Classroom Award. We are ideal for the Key Stages One and Two topics ‘Homes and Houses’ and ‘The Tudors’. Over 6,000 school children a year visit us and our experienced Education Team is always happy to discuss organising a school trip.
