The Black Country Living Museum is an open-air, living history museum spread over 10 hectares of land and exploring the history of the Black Country. Not only are the more than 50 buildings here open to tours of living history, but they are also a functioning village where you can learn about the region as well as enjoy shopping and dining. 

    The museum opened in 1978 and has grown by leaps and bounds over the years. Most buildings were relocated from their original sites, and today they represent over 3 centuries but with a focus on the mid-19th through the mid-20th centuries.
