Established in 1978, Black Country Living Museum is one of the UK’s leading open-air museums. Designated by Arts Council England for the quality and national significance of its collections, it attracted over 300,000 visitors in 2022.

Visitors can experience sights, sounds, smells, and tastes of the Black Country as they explore shops, houses and industrial workshops rebuilt in the Museum’s canalside village. From the Industrial Revolution to post-war prosperity, they will discover the history of a small region that made a big impact on the people, culture and industry of the world by meeting historical character bringing back to life the people that made this place home, from metalworkers and miners to nurses and schoolteachers – and even a pub landlord or two.
