Service information

Walsall Museum


Walsall Museum, which was located in the Walsall Central Library building, closed on 31 March 2015.

This was as a result of a £70,000 reduction in the Museum Service budget, to help Walsall Council to meet necessary savings of £86 million over four years.

Access to collections

However, Walsall Museum collections (including social history; lock making; lorinery; brass casting; costume and textiles; the Hodson Shop; and printed ephemera) continues to be managed and cared for by the Council via Walsall Leather Museum, and remains accessible through initiatives, including:

  • Study visits to the Museum Service's store (through prior arrangement with the Collections Officer).
  • 'Behind Closed Doors' project - using dedicated funds from the Marches Network to faciliate the use of stored collections and create Discovery Boxes.
  • A programme of exhibitions at Walsall Leather Museum and elsewhere in the Borough.
  • Online access via www.blackcountryhistory.org.uk and other websites.
