They have a good collection of lace knitting machines, some with their original Jacquard control cards in place. Sadly, the interpretation is poor with little more than a statement of each machine's name and date. It would be a lot more interesting if, say, one of these very unusual machines (or even one of the "model" machines) could be rigged... More

Went to this museum not knowing what to expect, but came out knowing we enjoyed inside, plenty of great things to see inside, staff were very helpful & knowledgeable, with lots to see inside. A hidden gem inside Wollaton Hall & Deer Park. A must visit & very cheap to get in!

I enjoyed learning about old Nottingham.... I struggled with the stairs a bit, but it was worth it to see the old house, and all the vintage rooms.. My visitors loved it....

Not expensive and there was so much to see. All labelled clearly. The volunteers are really friendly and like to answer questions. Some of the machines are still running, which is lovely to see. A little gem that's well worth a visit.

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.
