The people of Dudley Metropolitan Borough possess an impressive collection of heritage material. It spans thousands of years and illustrates the unique landscape, lives and pride of this region, but is far from insular, with contributions from other regions and countries.

This is cared for by Dudley Museums Service and archive service. A proportion is displayed at Dudley Museum at the Archives and the Red House Glass Cone.

It is impossible to display all of the collections generated by the rich heritage of this region. So, none of the displays in our venues are static. Objects and art works are rotated between the collection stores and each site.

While you are waiting to physically visit us, explore our collection online.

Black Country Partners

The partners care for an incredible range of collections. Follow the links below to view object groups that represent particular strengths:

Not only are the collections of great importance to this region, but they also have national significance. The following groups fit in this category: the Hodson Shop collection of twentieth century working-class clothing, the geology collections of DMBC Museum Service, Sandwell and Wolverhampton museums and the glass collections of DMBC MS.
