Plan your visit

Explore living history

Leave the 21st century behind for the day and walk through our 26 acres to experience sights, sounds, smells, and tastes of the Black Country as you explore shops, houses and industrial workshops rebuilt in our canalside village.

There’s plenty for the whole family to get stuck into, including:

  • Talking to historical characters bringing history to life
  • Heading underground for a glimpse of life as an 1850s miner
  • Testing your times tables in a 1912 school lesson
  • Watching a vintage film in our 1920s cinema
  • Enjoying the tastes of the past in our 1930s fish and chip shop
  • Drinking a pint or soft drink in one of our two pubs
  • Playing old-fashioned street games
  • Taking a ride on one of our heritage vehicles
  • Seeing live industrial demonstrations
