Experience the industrial might of the Black Country at Red by Night as skilled craftsmen and live demonstrations bring the reality of ‘black by day, red by night’ to life.

Part of the European annual Museums at Night Festival, the Museum will celebrate the regions rich industrial heritage in this one off Half Price  event as we open up our doors after hours for an atmospheric evening of live entertainment, industrial demonstrations, good food and living history.

Step back in time and explore 26 acres of shops, houses and industrial areas. Wander through the cobbled streets, boat docks and industrial wasteland and see for yourself what it was like to live in one of Britain’s most heavily industrialised landscapes.

  • Discover the Museum’s newly-restored 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.
  • See the pit brought to life at the recently restored Racecourse Colliery experience which will be open throughout the evening, allowing visitors to explore life ‘on top of the mines’.
  • Meet the pit bonk wenches, butties and Mine Manager characters in a multi-sensory experience that will transport you back in time.
  • See the fire breathing entertainers
  • Look up and you’ll see projections of images of the region’s industrial past on the Museum’s huge Victorian limekiln.

As the dark falls make sure to check out the Museum’s quirky watering hole, the Bottle & Glass Inn and outdoor bar which will be serving real ale and gin cocktails, or grab a bite to eat from the Museum’s famous Hobbs’ fish and chip shop.

plus, don't forget... tickets are half price!
