New look for the Birmingham Nature Centre!
Recent renovations to the Birmingham Nature Centre shop and reception area were completed in June 2012 and the Museum building is now re-open to the public.
The new reception area is spacious and light and is equipped with large screens displaying the latest information about the Centre's latest animals and activities. It has beautiful new wooden benches, hand crafted by our Assistant Manager Colin Parker, for patrons to sit and relax.
The shop has a new, improved layout and is fully stocked with a variety of toys and gifts to suit all ages and tastes. All of this is complimented by the surrounding array of plants and two giraffes that stand proudly next to the ‘Animal Sponsorship Tree’, giving a real feeling of bringing the outside in.
To add to the new look, visitors are also greeted on arrival by newer members of the Reception team, Information Assistants Charlotte and Zoe, Ranger Support Officer Danielle and existing member of the team Neil.
The staff have commented “Customers are so surprised about the new look and we receive nothing but praise about how much the building has improved!!”
Comments from the staff are mirrored in feedback received by customers themselves:
"The new shop is great "
"The gift shop was one of the most enjoyable parts of our visit"
"The Nature Centre is clean and reinvigorated- losing it’s dated image"
"The Visitor Centre is much improved"
