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.

A great day out with a teenage grand-daughter. The venue seemed well-run and the information-givers friendly and knowledgeable. There's a lot of walking involved to cover the whole site but it's definitely worth doing. The fish and chips were the best I had had for...More
