I love the location of Oak House. I remember the first time I visited and truly marvelling that as I passed through the terraced streets of West Bromwich, tucked away is this half timbered Yeoman's house that was built between 1590-1630.
With a small walled garden it is a free museum that often has activity days and public events to get you involved with everything from how to wash your clothes with your own pee to the daily life of a Yeoman.
I've had the honour of being allowed in the closed off areas and i really wish that they would let you up as there are even more gems to see from a hidden taxidermy collection to stacks of mayoral chairs from when the Black Country local councils became one Sandwell council.
It's worth popping by just to see how random it looks in the middle of a housing estate. Fingers crossed they will get the super ancient barn restored and their great plans to make this an even better museum and visitor centre.
this is a small house set in victorian times great to see a bit of history
my son went here last week with the school, he said it was boring. i think it for people older then 25
