Black Country Museum
The Black Country Museum takes you back to the height of the Industrial Revolution. The Black Country is the industrial region in the Midlands of England. It has earned its name because of the smoke from the thousands of ironworking foundries and forges. The open-air museum is made to look like a Black Country village, costumed demonstrators and craftsmen bring the building to life with their knowledge, skills and humour. You'll feel like you've gone back in time. Throughout the year there are some fascinating events that are great fun. The museum is uniquely placed to tell the story of the creation of the world's first industrial landscape. There are over fifty authentic shops, houses and workshops made to look like the buildings did back in the day. If you want to enjoy everything this unique museum has to offer you'll need about half a day, but if you want to see the demonstrations and events like metal working or glass cutting, it's better to go for a full day. Revel in the history of the Black Country go back in time. Enjoy a fun and educative day out at this amazing museum.
