Covering 26 acres of former industrial land, Black Country Living Museum is uniquely placed to tell the story of the creation of the world’s first industrial landscape. Over fifty authentic shops, houses and workshops have been carefully reconstructed to preserve the character of the region when its manufacturers bought 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.

The BCLM is one of my favorite locations in the U.K. The dedication of the staff to restore and recreate England's past is to be commended. The village has grown since our first visit in 1994 by over double. I was told that there will...More

Planning on visiting the museum within the next few days, and possibly bringing my bags with me as I'm travelling from another city - does anyone happen to know if there's a place I can store them at the museum or in the admissions building? Thanks!

We did not see any lockers although if your traveling by rail I guess you could use the lockers at the station? The car park seemed pretty secure to us. You enter via a barrier and it's in the museum controlled area. You... More
