Walsall Leather Museum is a welcoming and friendly attraction housed in a restored Victorian factory building and is rated the No 1 visitor attraction in Walsall by Trip Adviser.

The Museum offers a fascinating insight into the story of Walsall's historic leatherworking trade.

In the atmospheric workshops, skilled leatherworkers can be seen handcrafting leathergoods such as wallets and purses and visitors are able to try their hand at this. 

The adjacent displays tell the story of the Walsall trades and feature splendid examples of local craftsmanship past and present, including saddles made for the Royal family and exciting contemporary designs.

There are regular guided tours and demonstrations of leather crafts, and a lively programme of events and activities throughout the year, including changing exhibitions. Please click here to see our latest programme.

The museum boasts beautiful gardens planted with trees and shrubs traditionally used in the tanning of leather.  Visitors can take a break in the Saddle Room Cafe which offers a tempting selection of homemade cakes and snacks and the museum shop specialises in Walsall-made leathergoods at discounted prices.
