Black Country Living Museum is proud to offer Access Tours, to help to bring the Black Country’s story to everyone. These specialist tours are designed to support those with additional access needs by providing both Audio Descriptive and British Sign Language interpreted activities. The tours take place once a month on a Saturday, and begin with an introductory welcome to the Museum, revealing Black Country history through touch and handling experiences.

The Museum strives to encourage visitors of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities to join in as their team delve into the rich history of the Black Country through themed tours, sensory hotspots, shops, and houses – and not forgetting their bespoke touch tables!

Deaf Friendly tours facilitated by a qualified British Sign Language interpreter for deaf and hard of hearing visitors. The BSL interpreter works alongside one of the Museum’s friendly historic characters who will support the tour by spoken interpretation.

Plus, the Museum has formulated an accessibility map to help support your future visit, as they continuously work hard to ensure the historic site is as accessible as possible for your visit.

For this year’s Access Tours, visitors can explore a variety of Black Country stories. Discover what a day in the life of a working horse was like in the 19th Century, explore the Museum’s heritage vehicle collection and discover some of the region’s most famous exports. Visit to find out more.
