Black Country Living Museum

The Black Country Living Museum is located in Dudley in the West Midlands in England. The museum occupies a twenty six acre urban heritage park in the shadow of Dudley Castle in the centre of the Black Country conurbation of two million people.

Electric trams and trolleybuses transport visitors from the entrance in a recreated factory to the village area with thirty buildings situated by the canal basin. Coal mine displays include underground workings, colliery surface buildings and a replica of the 1712 Newcomen steam engine. In all, forty-two separate displays have either been re-erected or built to old plans to create a living open air museum.
