There is plenty of working industrial heritage on the site to keep you occupied for over an hour. The cotton mill upstairs and the engines downstairs give an insight into what industrial life used to be like. There is also a nice collection of Jowett vehicles and a row of terraced houses with rooms decorated in different eras. Although there... More

Not many places of interest you can visit these days where it is FREE Parking and FREE entry, but at Bradford Industrial Museum both are FREE!! How interesting our visit was, something for everyone. I worked in the mill many years ago and many fond memories were brought back in the Mill section. Well worth a visit, 1st class attraction.

We visited this museum as a family. Easy free parking, free entrance too. Theres loads to see throughout the decades. I especially like the houses that are set up from different decades, you can see how things progress. Theres cars, bikes, trains to see too, plus the industrial side such as the different woollen machines that were used, you can... More

This quaint little attraction is hidden away. There's lots to learn from! It is a great day out for kids and adults alike but it's more suited to adults as kids tend to get bored.

Spent nearly four hours here, very interesting, especially enjoyed the transport section and the houses, but few activities for children.

It's a way out of Bradford, but this large museum is very interesting, and there are all sorts of things to see here. We were so engrossed, we completely missed the upper floor! My favourite was probably the great display of old Panther motorcycles.
