What's On



The BME hosts several temporary exhibitions per year in addition to the permanent collection.  From never-before-seen images of the Rolling Stones, to an exclusive peek into the world of Rihanna our exhibitions offer access to some of the best photography and memorabilia of iconic artists, past and present. They even do a bit for charity...

Public Programmes

The Museum has an active Public Programmes component that brings together industry insiders and musicians with museum attendees and members through regularly scheduled exhibit openings, masterclasses, clinics and gigs. Our Public Programmes are designed to complement the temporary and ongoing activities of the museum to deepen the musical appreciation experience for each visitor.

Suitable for all the family.



We run a hugely successful series of educational workshops suitable for school children aged primary to 16+. From learning about immigration's influence on British music to advice on  careers in the music industry, these engaging and fun workshops are a great way to supplement the curriculum.
