Black Country Living Museum Museums
Black Country Living Museum
Discover a fascinating world when you visit Britain's friendliest open-air museum. The Museum occupies a 26 acre urban heritage park in the shadow of Dudley Castle in the centre of the Black Country conurbation of two million people.
Historic buildings from all around the Black Country have been moved and authentically rebuilt at the Museum to create a tribute to the traditional skills and enterprise of the people that once lived in the heart of industrial Britain.
Electric tramcars and trolleybuses transport visitors back in time from the modern exhibition halls to the canal-side village. Where costumed demonstrators and working craftsmen bring the buildings to life with their local knowledge, practical skills and unique Black Country Humour.
