Description: Covering 26 acres of former industrial land, Black Country Living Museum...
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.

My family and I, really enjoyed this fun, oldie worldie village. Its fascinating for all ages, and the fish & chips cooked in beef dripping are fantastic. I will be returning, maybe at Christmas or Hallowe'en as they do theme days. I would recommend this museum.

I was really impressed coming here. I drove by this place so many times but never went in. Came here over bank holiday weekend. Was pretty busy but still you could find place to relax away from people. Never expected that there will be so much fun, old-school shops where you can buy sweets or fish and chips. It's a... More

Went yesterday and although very busy there was plenty of room although some of the timed events (such as mine trips and cinema) were rammed and you had to get their prompt so on busy days be warned. The queue for fish and chips was so big we did not bother. This is an excellent place to go that really... More

Got a 2 for 1 ticket, worth every penny, excellent place to visit. The Workers institute café was very good and not too badly priced, great stuff for kids to do and very interesting

There is something for everyone here, whether old or young. Very interesting to see the way people lived years ago. Educational for children and maybe bringing back memories for older people. Plenty to see and do. The group I went with was a retired staff association from Tesco (Group 47), South Wales. The fish and chips were excellent, the only... More

Living history museums are brought to life by the people who work there who add interesting and often unusual facts to the bricks and mortar of the place. In this respect the BCLM provided excellent staff both paid and volunteers. Do not expect everything to be perfect as there is always work being undertaken to repair or improve an exhibit... More

Loved it. Was there from the minuet it opens till the second it shut. Was so much to do and see. The kids had a ball and learnt so much history at the same time. We paid to go on the canal trip into the tunnels and caves which was amazing and fun. While we was there we had to... More
