From 22 December 2016 the current Dudley Museum and Art Gallery building, located on St James’s Road, Dudley, will be closing before the exhibitions move to their new, modern home at the Archives building, Tipton Road.

The new museum and art gallery, which will be in the heart of the main tourist attractions at Castle Hill, including the Zoo and Castle, The Black Country Living Museum and Canal Trust, will have improved parking and access for people with disabilities.

The museum’s new location will further strengthen the visitor experience and provide a modern and accessible facility.

The new building will open in summer 2017.
