Overview
More
Covering 26 acres of former industrial land, Black Country Living Museum is uniquely placed to tell the story of the creation of the world’s first industrial landscape. Over fifty authentic shops, houses and workshops have been carefully reconstructed to preserve the character of the region when its manufacturers bought worldwide fame to Black Country Towns. Take a trip on the tram to explore the canal-side village, where you can meet and chat to the costumed characters. Explore the underground mine and experience the authentic sights, sounds, smells and tastes from the past.

We visited the museum today on a gorgeous sunny day and we had a fantastic time. The volunteers were brilliant with my young daughters especially in the house with the pigs (my daughter’s words) and the museum is fun and informative!
