Discover a fascinating world where historic buildings from all around the Black Country have been moved and authentically rebuilt in a heritage park, creating a tribute to the traditional skills and enterprise of the people that once lived in the heart of industrial Britain.

The story of the Black Country is distinctive because of the scale, drama, intensity and multiplicity of the industrial might that was unleashed. It first emerged in the 1830s, creating the first industrial landscape anywhere in the world. It is this that we rejoice in and want to share with you.

This award-winning corner of the West Midlands is now one of the finest and largest open-air museums in the United Kingdom, with a village full of charismatic residents to chat with, trams to ride and games to play. 

Opening times vary throughout the year.
