A really good value visit, providing a fascinating collection relating to the Industrial History of the area and all for £2 (only £1 for over sixties!) There is a cafe in the courtyard and lovely walks through the grounds and round the lake.

We went on the last Sunday in October and most of the engines, etc were in operation. They do this on the last Sunday of each month. Great place to spend a few hours and the volunteers are very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly.

I wasnt that interested in this museum but it was actually very well done and informative which encouraged me to learn a lot. Iwould suggest going on a steam day.

This is a good museum covering the Industrial heritage of Nottingham from Lacemaking to Motorcycle manufacture. The whole thing is staffed by volunteers who are enthusiastic and helpful. There are steam engines running on the last Sunday of every month. The admission prices are okay too.

The museum is very well organised, covering Transport, Lace, other locally manufactured items and steam engines. It is staffed by very enthusiastic and knowledgeable volunteers. All four of us found it absolutely fascinating.

Small but great little museum situated in the grounds of Wollaton Park which has a working Beam engine,well worth seeing when its running entrance fee is £4.00,when engine is running and £2.00 when its not. Parking £4.00 per day well worth combining it with a visit around the hall and gardens which are free. Enjoy !!!!!!

This is a fascinating little industrial museum within the grounds of Wollaton Hall with a fully working Beam Engine (which only operates on certain days). There is a small entrance fee but the Hall and Grounds have free entry. Expect the spend about 45 minutes in here, assuming that you take your time with the intresting and informative displays.

I thought I was fairly clued up on much of Nottingham's industrial history until I visited this excellent museum, set in the grounds of Wollaton Hall (Wollaton Park). The staff were extremely friendly, helpful and obviously dedicated (they are volunteers) and the range of exhibits was from a beam engine down to small models of steam engines. Nottingham was at...

Went on a 'steam' day, which is probably best if you want to see things working. There is a wealth of artefacts here - including lace-makers machines, printing presses, telephones, vehicles and a collection from a shop that closed! Good value for money.
