Black Country Living Museum
Tipton Road, Dudley. DY1 4SQ • (0121) 557 9643
Covering 26 acres of former industrial land, the Black Country Living Museum is an open-air museum offering a glimpse into 200 years of the area's history. Opened in 1980, the museum has since greatly grown, adding new buildings and exhibits to the large site.
Over fifty authentic shops, houses and workshops have been carefully reconstructed to preserve the character of the region when its manufacturers brought worldwide fame to Black Country Towns.
Take a trip on the tram to explore the canal side 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. Watch the silver screen flicker to life in the Limelight Cinema with silent films from the 1920s. Marvel over vehicles from the golden age of motoring and experience a real spit and sawdust Inn.
