Whether you’ve been before or it’s your first time, we’ve got the perfect day out with an entire historic town for you to explore at Black Country Living Museum in Dudley in the West Midlands.

Meet a whole host of historic characters as you step into period houses, shops and industrial workplaces. With stories to discover, immersive experiences to enjoy and games to play, it’s a full day out with something new for everyone on every visit.

If you haven’t experienced the hustle and bustle of our new 1940s-1960s high street or watched clay fly in our Industrial Quarter yet, you don’t know what you’re missing!

Spend your summer days out bopping along to vinyl, strolling along high streets from the past, taking a mothercraft class, saying ‘Ow’ do’ to our historic characters, enjoying some bostin’ Black Country fittle, learning about rationing, hopping on a ride at the historic funfair, trying on historic clothing, and seeing some brickmaking in action… and that’s not even half of what we’ve got in store for you!

And don’t forget, when you pay for a day visit to the Museum, you’ll automatically get an UnChained Annual Pass that gives you 12 months of return visits for free!* You can then visit as often as you like because we know that one day is not enough.

So, mark your calendars for a summer filled with exploration, education and entertainment and come with us on a journey through the Black Country’s history. Tara-a-bit!
