The Pen Museum wins Heritage Lottery Fund support

The Pen Museum has received £90,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) towards a project set to see the museum secure its future and introduce new generations to this largely unknown part of Birmingham’s past.

The project will develop the museum’s spaces and volunteer workforce, and when it opens in August 2016 will include new exhibitions, helping visitors to learn more about this fascinating part of Birmingham’s story, as well as encouraging them to get hands on with traditional pens, inks and quills.

This award follows the HLF’s multi-million pound boost to the JQ, announced last year, in the Townscape Heritage initiative, the JQ Cemeteries, and the New Standard Works.
