The Black country living museum is a large outdoor museum dedicated to the industrial movement and general business in the west midlands, it comprises of many buildings which were once part of the community that have been taken apart and put back together in the grounds of the museum exactly how they would have looked. included in these buildings are the first houses ever to be built out of iron, other buildings include an old school, shops, a tailors and the ship yard.
There are original trams that will take you from one end of the museum right to the other. but i found it better to walk as i came across lots of old bits of broken machinery etc. throughout the town you will come across people dressed in Victorian outfits such as policemen and shopkeepers and kids can even take part in a class at the old school just as it would have been back in those days, you can also go down the coal mine and have your picture taken in Victorian dress although these cost extra on top of the entry fee and in the spring and summer periods they have an old fashioned fairground.
