Learn all about The Black Country and its amazing history with this series.
Black Country Living Museum is a pretty cool place to find out about the places we’ve come from. It’s also a great way to find out about the people behind our history too.
The Black Country was one of the most important parts of England in the Victorian era. It was essential for coal mining and factories which helped power the country at the time. The Black Country has some amazing history!
We’re delighted to have received support from Art Fund to bring the Black Country’s story to life in brand new ways for young people.

Art Fund is the national fundraising charity for art. It provides millions of pounds every year to help museums to acquire and share works of art across the UK, further the professional development of their curators, and inspire more people to visit and enjoy their public programmes. In response to Covid-19 Art Fund has made £2 million in adapted funding available to support museums through reopening and beyond, including Respond and Reimagine grants to help meet immediate need and reimagine future ways of working. www.artfund.org
