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.

The Black Country Museum is an absolute gem. All of the guides are in period dress and all have a wicked sense of humor! It feels more like an attraction then a museum. There is a great atmosphere about the whole site. Bags of nostalgia...More

Horrible beer, rubbish chips and overpriced. Slow service. We had to wait for a long time for food which was not good and the traditional pub had pretty awful beer. I like the buildings and museum, however.
