About the Black Country Living Museum

Over 50 authentic shops, houses and workshops have been reconstructed at the attraction, in order to preserve the character of the region when its manufacturers bought worldwide fame to Black Country towns.

Groups can take a trip on the tram to explore the canalside village, and meet and chat to the costumed characters. Explore the underground mine, and experience the authentic sights, sounds, smells and tastes from the past.

Group benefits apply to parties of ten or more.
