Discover a corner of the world that is frozen in time at the Black Country Living Museum.

One of the largest open-air museums in the United Kingdom, visitors will enjoy this thriving village full of shops, activities and residents all of which bring to life an extraordinary period of industrial history. Partake in an Edwardian school lesson, go shopping for groceries for your tea, take part in street games, go for rides on the old time fairground and enjoy some 1930s style fish and chips.

Listen to the stories from the people that live there as they share their daily lives with you. Take a walk down to the underground drift mine to experience the difficult life of a coal miner, take a ride on a tram, watch the blacksmith hard at work and dodge the flying embers and meet the pigs, horses and hens. Finally after a hard day a warm welcome, and a refreshing beer, await you in the traditional spit and sawdust pub.

Went with my whole family to the Black Country Living Museum. It was great! Loved the sweets! The river boats were very interesting. The actors really brought the place to life. I wish I got the chance to try the famous Fish & Chips but the line was too long. The fairground was closed for maintenance. We all especially enjoyed going down in the mines!! So cool!! I love it!! If you have small children that cannot hold still or be quiet do not take them down to the mines because it echos and disturbs the tour. Overall, we all enjoyed our day there.

Lots to see and do

Fascinating trip back in time. The staff/actors really make the day by bringing everything to life. The tour of the mine tunnels was brilliant. Only reason why I didn't rate Black Country Museum 5 stars was the lack of food outlets. Queues for fish and chips were enormous.
