Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

It is worth giving this at least 2 hours. Interesting exhibition and an unusual opportunity to use the manufacturing equipment to make your own basic nib, as well as being able to use a lot of different ones that were made earlier. Even the teenagers enjoyed it. Be prepared to get your hands inky! Great gift shop too!

I liked that we got to hear a bit about how the pens were made and make our own nib. I wish I'd had a guided tour throughout the whole museum, to hear more stories but the placards and posted readings were informative and interesting. I am still writing postcards with the basic pen I bought in the gift shop.

A fascinating insight into the manufacture and history of dip pens that were once exported around the world. Adults may even get a chance to manufacture their own nib. Then remember that ladies were required to produce 18,000 in a day for their 'lot'.

Making pen nibs was one of the 1000 trades/crafts in B’ham. This small museum not only tells the story but will let you experience the manufacturing process…making your own pen nib! Docents supervise, & it’s suitable for children. Afterwards, one also can try writing w/ different pens & inks…copy the provided calligraphy examples or experiment w/ your own.

I am an avid fountain pen user so visiting this museum was a must have. It did not disappoint!
The museum consists of several rooms which are a mix of a large amount of objects on display, including artful sales displays of pen nibs and ink pots of all shapes and sizes, audio/video and many opportunities to engage with the material, such as pens with various nibs and typewriters. Children can do a scavenger hunt.

The best part of the museum was Mr Hanks who could answer every question about pens and showed us all of the machines. He also guided us hands-on through the process of pen making and I went home with three pen nibs I worked on myself. He is an absolute treasure!

The museum also has a small but nice gift shop where I bought a handmade fountain pen (made by a local artist, I believe) and a calligraphy kit. The lady behind the till was also very friendly.

It is amazing to learn that pens, that's the bit we would probably call a nib, made in Birmingham were used all over the world and almost everything written after quills were used up until the era of the ballpoint and computer used a Birmingham pen.
The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable, willing to share stories and information but also to hear your stories. The demonstration of making a pen, and then to learn how many thousand each operator was expected to do in a day was mind blowing - one pen every two seconds!
Loads of information to take in, and you can go back to the displays and keep seeing something new.
A must of you are interested in history, industrial heritage and social developments.

This is absolutely must see for anyone who wants to deep dive into industrial history of Birmingham. Really informative, highly recommend!
And the guy who volunteers there simply adds up to already intriguing atmosphere of this place. Try taking a caligraphy test to check your personality :)
