This is a gem of a museum, quite small, but really interesting. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, and I learnt a lot about the social as well as the industrial history of Walsall. I would definitely recommend a visit.

Yes, there is a large shop with a good selection of locally made leather goods such as wallets, purses, belts, bags etc. The prices are very reasonable.
