About the Museum
Historic buildings from all around the Black Country have been moved and authentically rebuilt at the Museum, to create a tribute to the traditional skills and enterprise of the people that once lived in the heart of industrial Britain. Electric tramcars and trolleybuses transport visitors back in time from the modern exhibition halls to the canal-side village, where costumed demonstrators and working craftsmen bring the buildings to life with their local knowledge, practical skills and unique Black Country humour. Our trolley bus collection includes two operational trolley buses made by Sunbeam, Wolverhampton. We also have a selection of Black Country Trolley buses awaiting long term restoration including a rare and early Wolverhampton trolleybus, Number 78, made by Guy Motors in 1931. Trolley buses last ran in Britain in 1972 in Bradford, our trolley bus route is currently the longest in the country.
