Join in with 300 years of history like no other at one of the most extraordinary open-air museums in the UK. Black Country Living Museum immerses visitors into the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of its region’s past. Ride a bus or take a tram down to the Museum’s Canalside village to explore original period shops and houses, meet costumed characters along the way - they’ll explain what it was like to live and work in one of the world’s most heavily industrialised landscapes. Discover the past as you descend ‘into the thick’ of the underground mine; see sparks fly as our chain maker forges a link; test your times tables in our school or watch a silent film in our 1930s cinema. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, grab a bag of our traditionally cooked fish and chips or quench your thirst in the Bottle & Glass Inn where a warm welcome awaits. www.bclm.com
