Black Country Museum

18th August 2017

Dudley Black Country Museum – 18th August 2017 – Coach & Entry – £29.95 adult /£24.95 Costumed characters will explain what it was like to live and work in one of the world’s most heavily industrialised landscapes.  Original period shops and houses of one of the most extraordinary open-air museums in this country.  Sparks fly as our chain maker forges a link, witness the glow of our forges, smell the steam of our engines and hear the banging of hot metal. Descend on foot ‘into the thick’ of our underground drift mine and face the harsh reality of a coal miner’s life in the mid-19th century. Test your times tables in a 1912 school lesson.  Ride on the fun fair, try your luck at  ‘hook a duck’ and hit the right spot with a throw on the coconut shy.   fish & chips are simply the best- well we think so.

Try our famous traditionally 1930s cooked fish and chips. Take a ride on one of our vintage trams or buses and find out why the Black Country became famous for the manufacture of vehicles. Meet Snowdrop & Bluebell our pigs, Danny & Charlie our horses and our Sussex Buff Hens. Quench your thirst in the Bottle & Glass Inn where a warm welcome awaits in the traditional spit & sawdust pub.*tours etc incur extra costs.
