Give the Black Country's past a future

As one of the finest and largest open-air museums in the UK, we celebrate the distinctive story of the Black Country which gave the world its first industrial landscape.

Our self-reliance and financial independence means that we're able to meet our daily running costs, however the support of our donors is vital so that we can continue to engage and inspire visitors of all ages to join in 300 years of history.

As a Patron giving a gift as little as £25 per month, you can be at the heart of our work as an educational charity.

How your gift helps us

With your support we can inspire and educate young minds and preserve our collection of over 80,000 objects.
