We came on a Saturday using Tesco Days Out vouchers which reduces the cost to a quarter, only disadvantage is that it doesn't get gift-aided and therefore no free re-visits. So if you intend to come back within 12 months pay full price (10 % discount online) , if its a one-off visit use Tesco vouchers. There is a modern... More

An excellent place to visit, plenty to see and children to engage with. Quite a lot of walking but a pleasant day out

On arrival we were shocked by the price of the museum, but if you gift aid it then your ticket is valid for as many visits as you like in the next 12 months. And this place is definitely worth a second visit! So much to see and do. The canal trip is fab and the coal mine worth it,... More

Visited BCM on a Saturday in September. The place was busy without being overrun and getting there early enabled us to enjoy most of it before the big crowds arrived. It's great that somewhere like this exists, preserving the history of the Black Country perfectly. It was good to see the old fashioned shops, the motor museum and the various... More

At first I was a little uncertain about this place. The idea of a live museum didn't appeal to me but I'm really glad I went. The place is massive and there is so much to do. I enjoyed talking to the staff in character as it was educational but also entertaining. The beef dripping chips are a must. I... More

We visited today and absolutely loved it! Walking around the shops and houses my 6 year old adored chatting to the shopkeepers and homeowners who were all friendly, knowledgeable and authentic. The cinema showing a silent film of laurel and hardy even entertained my 2 year old. We thoroughly enjoyed it and will be visiting again soon. (Incidently our tickets... More

We are both 50 yrs of age and went along with our 10yr old Grand Daughter. We were not sure of what he reaction we... More

Had a delightful day at this attraction. Something for everyone, history that comes alive around every corner. The attention to detail is first class, the staff informative and so friendly.

I'd been to other examples of living history museums, but none have impressed me as much as this one. Once you step into the main museum area, you are transported back to sample the industrial history of the Black Country including a mock up of a coal mine, antique buses to ride around in, shops to visit including a bakers...
