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.

It’s become a family tradition visiting this little gem in the heart of the Black Country, first with my sons and now grandson. I never get bored of the fabulous and informative detail provided and love the history provided.

Its been a while since I last visited the B.C.L.M but I wasn`t at all disappointed. Some little changes had been made with certain buildings but life in the `Old Black Country` was alive and kicking. Stepping back to around 1910 and seeing the kids...More

A fascinating recreation of original buildings, shops, pub, fish and chips etc. Workshops making chain and nails in blacksmiths forges were my favourite parts. You can take heritage buses around the site. Ticket seems a lot to pay but it is good for a year.

Yes the minimum age is 5 years. We had to miss this when we took our almost 3 year old.
