Walsall Leather Museum

Littleton Street West, Walsall, West Midlands WS2 8EW

Walsall Leather Museum is located in Walsall, in the West Midlands in England, and was opened in 1988, in a Victorian factory building renovated by Walsall Council.

Explore the museum at your own pace or ask a visitor assistant to show you around.

The ground floor displays introduce Walsall and the leather making process.

Upstairs, find out how Walsall became a leather working town. You will also find our temporary exhibition gallery, where there’s always something new to discover. Finally, our workshops show you what it was like to work in the leather industry 100 years ago!

Your senses will be engaged with the scent of leather when you walk into the museum. In the tannery, you can watch a short subtitled film about the work of a currier. Upstairs, you'll be able to create a your own leather keyring. We will bring back our other hands-on activities for you to enjoy when it is safe to do so.
