Black Country Living Museum is a world-class open air attraction which brings to life the rich history of the Black Country in an unforgettable 'living' experience. A tram ride to the canal-side village will leave you spellbound as a picture postcard from the past springs to life.
Discover the sights and sounds of a bygone era as you:
• Chat to the characters in the original shops, houses and workshops and meet the postman, policeman or lady chainmaker
• Go back to school with a lesson in the traditional schoolroom but be careful you mind your Ps and Qs!
• Explore the underground coalmine and discover a miners life in the 1850s
• Enjoy all the fun of the Old Tyme Fairground as you have a go on the Cakewalk and try your luck on the Coconut Shy
• Step into the spotlight as you watch silent classics in the 1920s Cinema
• Visit family favourites Benji and William the working horses
• See the traditional demonstrations from metal-working and glass-cutting to sweet-making
• Taste the difference with fish and chips from the 1930s Fried Fish Shop washed down with a pint of real ale from the Bottle and Glass Inn
Or just soak up the atmosphere......
