It is inspiring to see the looms/machines used in the lace making round Nottingham as well as the bicycles and motorbikes etc produced by Raleigh in the factory which was on Triumph Road. There is an awareness of something special especially on the weekends when the pump engine is run.

We visited the Nottingham Industrial Museum over the weekend whilst visiting Wollaton Park. The last time I came here was when I was around 10 so I was quite excited to revisit my childhood! (I'm 41 now) What a place - full of steam engines, motorcycles, communication systems, lace making machines and much more alll relative to Nottingham. Admission is... More

Bigger than I expected, certainly bigger than it looked from the outside. I loved the moving exhibits the most. There was a terrific model train display that I wished was two or three times the size, though it was fascinating enough at it's current size. Fascinated too by a selection of old phones and an archaic cigarette vending machine. Well... More

I remember seeing this on TripAdvisor, but didn't think about much. Turned out to be a really nice museum, with lots of information and machinery, some of them functional! It's really interesting to see the machines working, even though they're not functional anymore, naturally. The museum itself it's not very big, but you should take some time to read everything,...

A hidden gem. Worth a visit if your in the area. Ample parking for all and a cafe nearby to rest your feet after a decent walk and grab something to eat.

If you are someone with even an iota of mechanical orientation, this place is a must visit. The museum is a true marvel and shows the industrial history and heritage of Nottingham. It was amazing to know that one of the best motorcycles that was ever made, the brough superior came from Nottingham. Also, the machinery that once did duty... More

Today we were able to go inside this place for the first time, I don't think it's normally open weekdays which is a shame but today being bank holiday Monday it was open. £5 for a family of 4 ticket was a bargain. We all found this place really interesting with lots to look at. My youngest loved the model... More
