Black Country Museum

1940’s Weekend

Sunday 10 July 2022

This is yet another favourite venue for us and the day we are visiting they are also holding their 1940’s weekend so there should be plenty to entertain everyone, we last visited here in 2013, and it is always interesting to see what is new at these venues. Your tickets will be given out on the coach and as usual you are free to explore the site as you wish.

The site is set across twenty-six acres, you will have the opportunity to explore over forty carefully reconstructed shops, houses and industrial areas that represent the Black Country's story

Vintage buses will be running during the day, and you can see a flick in the 1920’s cinema,  go to an Edwardian School and have a go at some of the old-fashioned street games.

The Museum preserves a section of the Black Country’s industrial landscape, including two mine shafts, limekilns, and a canal arm. The Museum has relocated buildings into our canal side village, which have been drawn from across the many small towns of the region.

Each house, shop and workshop has been filled with collections, from sad irons to nails, that would have been seen in situ from the 1800s to 1940s.

In total, there are approximately 80,000 items in the collections for you to discover.

There is ample to look and see here and most places are now wheelchair accessible with a site accessibility map available to pick up at the entrance.

There are several outlets for  food including Hobb’s Fish and Chip Shop, The Bottle and Glass Inn, Workers Institute Café, Crown Tube works café, Veal’s Bakery and of course T Cooks sweet shop, so I am sure there will be something for every-one.

Additional information will be available on your information sheet on the day of travel.
