Black Country Musem 25th March 2020 Yr 8

Trip Overview

The History Department would like to offer all year 8 students the chance to spend time away from the classroom on a day trip to the Black Country Living Museum.  This will expand and deepen their understanding in their upcoming unit on the Industrial Revolution, particularly as we look at the impact of this on Birmingham.  

The Black Country Living Museum offers a unique look into Birmingham history during the Industrial Revolution.  The museum houses reconstructed houses, shops and industrial areas to show the local history. Students will have a chance to learn about how steam power, human ingenuity and an increasingly interconnected world transformed Birmingham into a manufacturing powerhouse. The museum also has a number of historical characters who will be able to tell the students stories about what it was really like at the time.
