This is a brilliant day out for any age. There's a whole range of things to see and do. A great place to walk around, or take the tram. The volunteers tell wonderful stories of life at that time. The mine trip is worth doing and the fish and chips are a must - you won't find any to beat... More

We visited on the 31st Aughust 2014, it cost us £75 for 2 adults and 2 children. It is very well sign posted from the motorway, no real chance of getting lost. There is quite a bit to see but it's spread out. My children enjoyed the Victorian fair but this is an additional cost to the entry fee. There... More

We visited the Black Country museum on what turned out to be a wet summer day but it didn't marr our experience at all. The Museum is layed out beautifully and old fashioned buses run every 15 minutes, doing a circuit of the whole area. There are a few hills to manage so the buses are good idea for those... More

We loved the mine and the canal trip through the limestone hill. A brilliant place to go for families or adults. All really well kept and laid out, so much to see and do and really good interpretation of everything by the volunteers who dress up in period clothes - they really know their stuff. Only disappointment was the HUGE... More

Had a brilliant time here. The trip down the mine was well worth the 40+ minutes we had to wait. It was a fantastic experience & especially enjoyed by our 10 year old. There really is so much to see here and there are so many buildings you can go into and look around. I have seen people comment on... More

What a wonderful place to have visited. I loved everything about my visit here today. I particularly enjoyed the fish and chips served in a old fashioned chip shop (I have allergies and the chippy was able to accommodate this brilliantly offering me an alternative!) There is so much to do here and we allowed ourselves to get immersed in... More

We have been to the Black Country Museum on several occasions over the years and each time it gets better. This is a chance to step back in time, because all the buildings are relevant to the period, whereas similar places we have visited tend to have a collection of buildings from different time scales. We had a ride down... More
