Join in with 300 Years of History

See history brought to life and discover the story of the Black Country at our open-air living museum. Meet our historic characters who’ll show you what it was like to live and work in one of the first industrialised landscapes in Britain as you explore 26 acres of reconstructed shops, pubs and houses.

From watching live demonstrations and taking part in old fashioned street games to visiting our vintage cinema and enjoying our traditional fish and chips, there’s something for everyone at Black Country Living Museum. 

Tickets for our Christmas events are on sale now!
