Another Flatpack regular, Millennium Point is a focal point in Birmingham’s new look Eastside. The impressive building is home to Birmingham’s science museum, Thinktank, as well as the Giant Screen cinema and facilities for the neighbouring Birmingham City University. Outside the venue sits Birmingham’s first city centre park, Eastside City Park, a green expanse of lawns, trees and water features that is the perfect place to unwind.
Wheelchair accessible. Additional accessibility information can be found here: http://millenniumpoint.ritdns.com/plan-your-visit
