Mullins Yard is sandwiched between the BCLM and the Castle Hill scheme, the latter being an ambitious plan by St Modwen to redevelop the zoo and its surroundings which came in for criticism earlier this year for the slow progress on the site by Ian Walden, director of BCLM.
Mullins Yard, which currently consists of a former tannery building and derelict land, sits between the St Modwen site and the BCLM and will be redeveloped as a mixed use leisure, tourism and retail scheme.
Buy a full-priced ticket, or family ticket for PS39, and it is turned into a BCLM Unchained Annual Pass, which is valid for 12 months for unlimited visits to daytime events and activities (not evening events or courses).
BCLM admission tickets bought online must be used for first admission to the museum within six months of the date purchased.
What always makes a visit to BCLM

They work at all types of events and will be back at the BCLM tonight as part of the Black Country Night (see factfile).
Originally opened on a permanent basis in 1978, the BCLM now has 150 attrac-tions, from its limekilns to large industrial and public buildings, shops, houses and canal features, trams and trolley buses.
The queue stretching back along the village street, kept in order by one of the BCLM
bobbies, is clearly a feature of the whole experience, as much as the authentic period rides at the funfair and the fascinating Black Country products housed in the former Rolf Street baths from Smethwick.
Jo Moody, Senior Curator at the BCLM
, said: "We want these activities to give visitors a real sense of the mood at the time and also gain insight into how the war affected different ages and communities.
