The Museum at Chasewater Railway is located in the Heritage Centre at Brownhills West Station and contains a large collection of railway artefacts, along with related mining and local history items.


Subject to availability, the Museum is open to the public between 11.00am and 3.30pm on Sundays and Bank Holidays throughout our operating period, on  mid-week days when trains are operating, and many Saturdays.


The museum team meet on most Tuesdays, and are happy to welcome visitors and those interested in volunteering. Please contact us before making a special trip or long journey just in case we are away that week. The museum team are often at work on other days during the week, please contact us to find out more.
