Dedicated to the history of Walsall, the museum is home to a wide-ranging collection of artefacts reflecting Walsall’s proud heritage, its many industries, and the lives of the people who lived here. In particular the museum houses the nationally important ‘Hodson Shop’ collection of twentieth century working clothing.
The borough’s history is explored in the museum’s permanent local history gallery, The Changing Face of Walsall, while an exciting programme of activities for children and adults means everyone can engage with their heritage.
Admission to the Museum is free.
