    Hi, does anyone know where I can find a voucher for the museum?
    The only ones I can see are on the days out guide which require train travel.
    Many thanks

    The days out guide deals do not require you to travel by train. You just need a train ticket per person. Buy the cheapest train ticket you can that is valid on the day of your visit.

    An Anytime Day Single from either Coseley or Dudley Port to Tipton is £2.20.

    Buying two of those singles saves £13.10 off the admission price for two adults.

    Using Clubcard vouchers, two people get admission for £10 worth of vouchers.

    They accept Clubcard tokens if you've got any spare

    Drive to Dudley Port station.
    Buy train tickets.
    Get back in car and drive to the venue.

    As mentioned above, buy Anytime Day Singles from Dudley Port to Tipton for £2.20. One needed for each visitor.

    Just presenting the ticket at the venue is enough proof.
    You do not need to travel on a train.

    If you're feeling guilty, buy a ticket from further away.
    For an extra ten pence a single from Sandwell & Dudley or Wolverhampton is available - £2.30 each.

    You can buy all these tickets at any manned railway station booking office.

    Thank you, I was just worried that if I bought it from Dudley Port to Tipton, I'm not actually using it to get to the venue?
    Thanks for the advice.

    If you buy your tickets online you can pick them up at any station ticket machine, wherever they are for - just choose your nearest from the drop down menu. I used the 2 for 1 offer and just picked up the tickets from my local station the day before our trip. Never used them and no questions asked at the museum I was visiting. Saved £16.

    We did it! They barely even looked at the train tickets. 4 adults for £43.80 instead of £70. Thanks everyone.
