Covering 26 acres of former industrial land, Black Country Living Museum is uniquely placed to tell the story of the creation of the world’s first industrial landscape.
Over fifty authentic shops, houses and workshops have been carefully reconstructed to preserve the character of the region when its manufacturers bought worldwide fame to Black Country Towns.
Take a trip on the tram to explore the canalside village, where you can meet and chat to the costumed characters. Explore the underground mine and experience the authentic sights, sounds, smells and tastes from the past.

Since 1976 the museum has operated from an open air site near Dudley. The museum has specialised in relocating characteristic buildings from the Black Country area to this site. The museum's collections now total almost 40,000 items, ranging from the buildings through to large machines and vehicles, tools and domestic items, and an archive of photographs, books and ephemera. In 2003 the Black Country Living Museum acquired the site and collections of the Lock Museum (now Locksmith's House) in Willenhall.
