Spent a totally absorbing day here, there is just so much to see and do that the opening hours are insufficient! It is a step back into the past but a real living past helped by the period characters and performers. The site is generally very wheelchair and mobility scooter friendly with ramps provided for those building with steps into... More

A great living museum for youngsters to see what life was like in the not to distant past. From shops to canal boats and houses to transport. There is an old type bus to take you around which is handy as there a bit of a hill from top to bottom. You must try the fish and chips in the... More

We enjoyed our visit here - the fish and chips are delicious but the queues are very long at lunch time. Staff are very friendly and chatty. The canal trust narrow boat ride is extra, but worth paying for. We went by train from Birmingham, and it is a dreary 20 - 25 minutes to walk to the Museum from... More

Been visiting the B.C.M. for several years and still enjoy our days out. Plenty of parking although it's not free. You have to purchase a token for £3.00 to exit. The cost of entry for two adults and two under sixteens was £24.00 but that was going online and looking for two for one offers. The young woman who took... More

We went on a Sunday with our teenager daughter and friend and arrived early. It is always worth looking for two for one offers which I did, otherwise works out expensive at 50 pounds for the family. I would advice to go straight for the mines as it quickly gets popular and this is well worth doing as it is... More

Latest visit to BCLM with wife, yet again well worth while. Lots of great photo opportunities, not too busy and weather good. Went on canal trust ride through tunnels while at museum. Great day out and will be visiting again. Good choice of books etc in gift shop.

Being Blk Country born and bred I really love this museum and have visited it several times - so much to see and do and lots of interactive things - my only gripe is that most of the guides accents are too refined - they dow spake proper Blk Country, this detracted from the authenticity of the museum (in my...

I did send a review but it does not seem to have been edited. Just fabulous, four visits later with two wonderful grandsons and we still have a wonderful time. Hope to be back again in 2015 - fish and chips was to die for. From Mick and Barbara Childs Stockton Southam Warwickshire

I went for a day trip and it is amazing. First of all, I went to have a look round in the village and there were some original houses and shop. The food that you can buy in the shops is great but I think that the price were overpriced a little. Then I went to the school and there... More
