BCLM preserves the unique history of the Black Country for generations to come, by taking care of our unique heritage buildings and objects.

Our ambitious projects allow us to bring 300 years of Black Country history to life, and reach new audiences to tell their stories. Our  educational programmes ignite the same spark that saw engineering, industry and manufacturing flourish at the peak of the Industrial Revolution.  This important work can only be achieved with your generous and much needed support.
