Visited on a late July Saturday afternoon & expected there to be more people there than there was. Great if you have children with you as they are encouraged to interact with the staff adults wasnt included. Good to see the kind of homes that people lived in around the time we was born. Fish & chips cooked in beef... More

A visit to this living museum is a must for lovers of tradition and family history,based on the same lines as Blists Hill near Iron Bridge and Beamish in Co Durham you can spend time in a Coal Mine, be chastised by a stern school teacher in a Victorian school room, ride on vintage buses, visit houses showing how our...

I visited the BCLM with my parents and partner, it was a fantastic experience with a vast array of activities, demonstrations and tours. It was well worth the money we spent on the tickets as it wasn't just a fleeting visit, we spent a full day exploring the museum. We were also very lucky with the weather! We had a... More

A great inexpensive day out, the trip down the mine is really good. Take the time to do the underground canal worth every penny

Visited the BCLM recently for a family trip. We had pre-booked the tickets online as I wanted to go there with my family as a 21st celebration day out. Booking the tickets online was quick and easy with an email being sent after booking giving us a barcoded sheet to print out and take with us. The BCLM is a... More

We visited the Black Country Living Museum with my parents and our two young lads. There was plenty to do, from riding around on old buses to first world war military drill. You can get old fashioned fish and chips and there's also a new cafe full decked out in Union Jacks (even if the main one is upside down!).... More

Lots to see and do, from underground canal boat ride to coal-mine tour, and fish & chips to old school. Excellent mix of exhibits and activities, well worth the fee.
