I am a very lucky Grandparent to have 3 Grandchildren who just love visiting this truely amazing monument to a very important place in the beating heartland of “The Industrial Revolution”.
Having first visited this living museum with my children when it was originally opened I have seen the ongoing rebuilding of the various domestic, commercial and industrial buildings that have been painstakingly removed brick by brick from towns within the Black Country to be saved for posterity, that would otherwise been lost forever.
I invest in an annual family pass as I live within 20 miles of this facility, and I do get my money’s worth.
The guides really know there stuff, you can buy old fashioned sweets, cakes and fish & chips as well as a pint of beer at the pub from the premises in the various streets that have been created in what is one of England’s treasures. It is also used as a stage setting for TV and Films “Peaky Blinders” being the most famous.
