Historic Heroes

20 July - 01 September 2019

Have a legendary summer holiday as you uncover inspiring stories and follow in the footsteps of Black Country heroes.

From passionate politicians to maverick movie directors, you will encounter the legendary heroes of the region’s past as you explore the Museum. Listen to the hair-raising rallying call of the notorious suffragette politician “Red Emma”; try your hand as a B movie extra in James Whale’s iconic Frankenstein film; or take part in the post-Wimbledon victory parade for Dudley-born tennis superstar Dorothy Round.

Enjoy the delights of traditional family fun and playtime in the last century, banish boredom with traditional street games including  hopscotch and skipping. Take up the challenge to see how long you can keep the hoop rolling in the hoop and stick game and test your skill with a cup and ball and the whip and top.

Not forgetting our usuals - you can also enjoy a trip 'Into the Thick', experiencing life in a 1850s coal mine, attend a Victorian school lesson and try our famous traditionally cooked fish and chips.

A great day out for the whole family.
