Things to do at Oak House Museum review

The Oak House museum is a timber-framed building from the 16th century located in West Bromwich, in the West Midlands. It is one of the oldest buildings in the area and it is now a museum. Due to covid restrictions, this attraction is yet to reopen.

The Turton family who is associated with the house were Yeoman (posh farmers to you and I) and nail makers. They later became money lenders who loaned money to impoverished royalist gentry after the English Civil War. They even managed to find their daughter a husband amongst the gentry that propelled the family up the social scale. You can find out more about the family in the Old Barn with their talking barrels.

The house museum boasts some fine panelling and it is furnished with 17th-century furniture. The house is set in its own grounds and there is a children’s playground on site which is open during the opening hours of the museum. The museum has activities throughout the year for all ages to enjoy.

Covid 19 – Please check the website or social media of an attraction before visiting. Many places may be open differently and some remain closed. Reviews do not mention all of these changes or possible price changes. Most places still require you to pre-book online in advance.
