Audio Descriptive Tour - A Day in the life of Danny the Horse

11 December 2020

This is a new date for this event.  It was originally scheduled for April, but was postponed as a result of the ongoing public health situation due to coronavirus (Covid-19). The new date for this event is  11 Dec.

Our specialist audio descriptive tours are designed to welcome visitors who are blind or partially sighted. 

Come and meet Danny the horse in Carter's yard and learn about his role, whilst seeing the many harnesses, buckles, and horse brasses on display.

Horse transport was an integral part of getting goods from one place to another during the nineteenth century. Horses were used as draught animals to haul narrow boats loaded with goods on the canal. They would drag heavy coal carts, pull trams, carriages, milk floats, as well as delivering wagons and fire engines. 

Come and explore our Audio Descriptive tours with one of our trained costume demonstrators exploring Black Country history through touch and handling experiences.

Specialist tours take place once a month on a Saturday from 2pm -3.30pm. 

Each tour begins with an introductory welcome to the Museum in the main visitor reception at 2pm.
