Visited recently for the first time in 25 years. It’s a small museum set over two floors and details with the history of leather making and local history in Walsall. So there’s a cabinet on Walsall FC (the saddlers) for example. There’s lots of artefacts and information about the leather making business from saddles to leather goods. You can stamp your own leather key ring too for 60p!
Nice staff, a small well stocked shop too. Definitely with a visit.

Really great museum with amazing staff and brill activities. It’s all free, and my kids absolutely loved it. The shop and cafe are really reasonably priced too, a great day out.

Visited as part of a group, whilst it's free to go and have a look around we were given a tour by Ian.
Ian is a very knowledgeable bloke who was very patient with our elderly group, nothing was too much bother.
The highlight of our visit for some of the group was the making of personalised keyrings which they made themselves.

Well worth a visit.

Kings Norton U3A Museum Visits Group visited the Walsall Leather Museum today and enjoyed a very informative morning. Ian, our guide shared his knowledge on the leather trade in Walsall. The skins and hides on display, the tools and machinery involved in producing the saddles and other goods including the Queen's handbags, was so interesting. Ian's talk with the addition of video footage of leather workers describing various techniques was great. Thank you for a fascinating visit.

An interesting insight into the world of Leather, and how Walsall played its part.

As its free you shouldn't really feel disappointed about your visit, however, for us it was lacking more detail and demonstrations.

If you're travelling through Walsall and you have some time to spare, it might be worth your time to call in, it takes about 20 mins to get around.

Excellent crafting session that had a brilliant atmosphere and was good value. All the staff around the museum were lovely. All 3 kids (3, 4 & 7) had a fab time both crafting and looking around the museum and making their own keyring.
