Did you know that we have over 80,000 items in our collection ranging from the 1850s to the 1940s?

As we embark on our major development project   BCLM: Forging Ahead, we’re now looking to collect items up to the 1960s. We’re particularly interested in items which:

  • Have a strong connection with the Black Country
  • Are underrepresented in other local museums
  • Fill a gap in our existing collections

If you think you have an item dating from the 1940s-60s that might be suitable to our new development, first of all, please give this document a read  and, if you feel it meets the criteria, get in touch to arrange an appointment with us – details below.

To arrange an appointment please telephone our Collections Team on 0121 557 9643 or email
