We have been wanting to come for a few years, we were undecided on where to go for a family day out and eventually decided to come here. We were not disappointed in the least, plenty of demonstrations and all the staff where very interactive from the shops to the street entertainers doing the old fashioned games, my eldest loved...

We went on Sunday of August bank holiday weekend so very busy. Trams were not working due to maintenance (that is to be expected from time to time) buses and trolley buses were both running. We had a trip on the canal (extra charge) which we enjoyed. Price was reasonable and if you gift aid (no extra cost but need... More

I dont know why but I tend to forget about this place when thinking of something to do and yet every time I have been I have loved my visit. We took the grandchildren for this visit and used the Gift Aid so have a ticket to return and I fully intend to do so but without the grandchildren this... More

Visited on the 16th August, my two children 9 & 11, found it fascinating enjoyable and sometimes strange. It is set out in a way that you can always be in an area to see something. A bus or trolley bus can take you from the start to the village and also for the return trip. In the village are... More

A wonderful day out with our grandchildren. Good for all ages and a journey back in time. Plenty to see and plenty of people dressed in period costume to engage with. See their website for more info about daily events etc. The underground mine is 30 minute tour on foot, each person has to wear a hard hat and one... More

As a black country resident, I felt it was appropriate to bring my Dutch boyfriend to the museum on one of his first trips over here. It was excellent, although if we hadn't have had the rail-usage discount and student discount, then it wouldn't have been affordable for us. Good value with discounts, without them is way too expensive for... More

Visited in late August as a family with two boys aged 8 and 11. Detail in the buildings was very good and employees in costume were happy to give an historic overview of their shop or building. Highlight of the day for all of us was the mine tour, the chap who took us round was really enthusiastic and great... More

We visited on a Sunday afternoon. The Black Country Museum has lots of interesting exhibits, and lots of things to look at. But when we visited there were simply too many people. It made it difficult to get in and around the houses and shops properly, which is a shame because you want to have a really good look at... More

We visited while it was raining which really didn't help. There are lots of things to look at and demostrarions going on. The mine tour was interesting but if you're as big am me (6ft 8) you may struggle. I can only imagine this place in the sun as I'm sure it comes alive a lot more. Overall worth a... More

What can you say about the Black Country museum? its a bostin place to go, steeped in history and full of friendly helpful characters. Nice pub and a bostin chippie with fish and chips cooked like they should be. Plenty to see and do and is a good value day out
