filming and venue hire

Visit the Museum and you may well be walking on the set of one of your favourite films or TV series!

We welcome different types of pre-booked filming, including feature films, television dramas, documentaries, interviews and photographic shoots (resource permitting).

We can accommodate film productions of all sizes with parking for a transport base, green rooms & production offices, in-house catering and an experienced filming team who understand technical & operational filming needs and who can be on-hand at all times for any on-site operations or access.

Based in Dudley, the Museum is centrally located in the UK, just 8 miles from Birmingham and only 3 miles from the M5 & M6, with the nearest train station just 1 mile away. There is a range of chain hotels, restaurants and a large leisure complex within 10 minutes walking distance.

Whilst we do accommodate filming, we are primarily a visitor attraction and therefore all filming is to be conducted outside of our opening hours.

Filming enquiries should be sent to [email protected] in the first instance.

Please download our Filming Regulations and Photography-Regulations for more details.

Please note, due to demand on resources we are not currently accepting requests for coursework-related filming from students.
