For kids who wish to run about looking at different things then this place is good, there's interest and plenty to see although from me being a child I can't see the excitement in the place now being an adult, still enjoy going though!

We had a wonderful half day here and left wanting more. We hadn't managed to look at all the exhibits. We concentrated on the mill related exhibitions. It was wonderful to see the machinery good working order and to hear the clatter on many of them in action.

We popped into this museum on way to visit relatives and we were glad we stopped by. All sorts of stuff from an exhibitions on Free Masonary to a steam train, looms and lots of old cars! There was plenty of activities for the kids and best of all it was free. Well worth a visit!

A visit here is well worth it .See how the old woollen looms used to weave the cloth and have a look into some mill worker cottages to see what living conditions were like in the past .

I loved this museum, so much to see There is a row of terraced houses which take you through the years. In the main building you learn about the history of industrial Bradford with the weaving looms & printing factories and also the transport It takes a couple of hours to look round

Shame the horses are retired but I loved all the history of the stables and knitting. The transport and tram section was great. Shame there was no café and one of the staff was unfriendly in the house but otherwise what amazing history!
