Happened to stumble into this on a free weekend and it was brilliant to see all the history and speak to the people who worked there who knew a great deal about locomotives

Bargain museum, only £2 entry! Very interesting, exhibits in section giving details of industries in Nottingham - I never knew Boots started off there! On the last Sunday of every month, the steam engines in the museum are operational - wish we'd gone then, but if we get the chance to go back on such a day we will -... More

This museum is excellent, it's not immediately obvious where it is as it's not sign posted from Wollaton Hall at all. Whilst there we were given a most interesting tour of the steam section of the museum by one of the guides who really made the visit worth while. Unfortunately we only started speaking to him about 20 minutes before... More

When the engines are in steam and the machinery running then the museum comes to life and is a fascinating visit (as was the case when we visited). Without this I suspect that a load of old machines (some in need of restoration) may be a bit dull for anybody other than the enthuiast.

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.
