Become a Patron

Become part of our future

As we celebrate our past 40 years we are looking to the future and embarking on an
exciting £23million development project, BCLM: Forging Ahead.

Through our work we aim to save, share and use Black Country stories to engage and inspire people, of all ages, to learn about the region’s heritage, its impact on the world and its relevance today.

These stories will be the inspiration for a major new historic development set in the 1940s – 1960s which, complemented by dedicated learning facilities and a new contemporary Visitor Centre, will secure the future of the Museum for the next 40 years, and beyond.

As a Patron giving as little as £10 per month, you can be at the heart of this transformational project and ensure the story of the Black Country is saved for generations to come.

As a key supporter of the Museum we will keep you updated with project progress and acknowledge your support, should you wish.
