26 May - 03 June 2018

Cars, anchors, locks, door knockers – Black Country folk had a worldwide reputation for mekkin' things!

Discover how their manufacturing prowess put the region on the map, and a have a laugh along the way this half term.

Explore 26 acres of shops, houses and industrial areas as you take on the ‘Where in the World?’ trail. From the West Indies to New Zealand, you’ll discover just how far the Black Country-made goods went. Those feeling up to the challenge will also be able to follow the footsteps of the Black Country’s legendary car manufacturers and make their very own ‘peg car’ too.

Explore newly restored areas of the Museum including the mighty Anchor Forge. Watch live demonstrations of this once mighty instrument, showing you how the Black Country produced some of the largest metalwork the world had known.

At the brand new Racecourse Colliery,  meet our new characters;  listen as the pit ‘oss pulls the tub along the tramway and watch as coal is transported up from the dark depths of the mine. You’ll see where the Black Country knack for making things all started – with a lump of coal!

Don’t forget that all full priced day tickets are valid for an UnChained Annual Pass, giving you 12 months’ unlimited daytime visits for free!
