Marvellous Machines

16 May - 17 May 2020

Have a blast in the past this weekend as you discover the cunning creations and ingenious inventions of the past. See the awe-inspiring machines of the Black Country over a weekend jam-packed with live demonstrations and fun for all ages.

Put yourself into the shoes of our 19th Century inventors and makers as they created marvellous and mind-boggling machines that changed the way we live and work. For this weekend only, feel the ground shake at our Edwardian anchor forge, which once made some of the largest anchors the world had ever known. You’ll find out for yourself how this new, machine-powered world changed the course of history forever.

Plus, from super strict Edwardian school lessons to loff-out-loud street games, there’s always plenty to see and do when you explore our 26 acres of period shops and houses. Why not use our interactive map to help plan your visit or check out our top 10 things to see and do?
