When I lived in Bradford I never visited this place but after having been away for a few years it was nice to visit and seen how things have changed, especially being able to see how things have changed in the last 50 years, let alone even further back. The museum is well set out and information on exhibits is... More

This is such a great little museum with plenty to see. It not only has fascinating machines and cars it also has a row of back to back houses each one set up from a different era.There is no cafe but a refreshment area with some vending machines.I really enjoyed learning about Printing and watching the volunteers work the presses.They...

Visited on a wet half-term day with our 5 year old grandson. I think the museum is very interesting, esp. when the machines are running, there are knowledgable staff and a great addition was the working blacksmith, stripped to the waist, making large nails from scratch and even embossing ones initials on the finished article. We spent about 90 minutes... More

The terrace houses are a must to look around as is the mill owners house (but I ve heard this is closing??) Bring back the horses and the... More

Because I've lived practically next door to the museum all my life it isn't all that exciting to me but I do remember going as a child and being fascinated by it all. The museum have regular events. My favourite being the Christmas markets where all the people are dressed for the Victorian days and the whole place has an... More

Went to catch the Speedway exhibition before it closed at the end of the month. Very good. Obviously featuring Odsal a lot, but none the worse for that. First time I've seen a bike close up and there were 3 of them covering the 1970's to date. Many other relics and memorabilia on show. Video screening non stop too. Altogether... More

I have visited the museum for years, but was pleased to see that it is still up and running and as interesting as before. It holds a vast array of machinery, transport and other information from Bradford's past, and the mill owner's and workers' houses are an added bonus. The staff were very friendly and helpful; shame there is no... More

I am a retired Engineer so my visit, to this location, brought back memories of the my first day at work in 1958. The old style belt driven machinery, Centre Lathes, Millers etc, are well laid out in workshop fashion while the main drive engine was a joy to behold. There is also a textile department, looms and bobbin winders,... More
