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

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.
