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!

I have wanted to go back here for a long time now because my father started work in this mill when he was 14 years old and often told me of mill life and how hard it was for them. Seems strange when I went to see it all quiet compared to the stories I know of but it is... More

Superb view of the past in Bradford. The transport Museum alone is well worth the visit. Very interesting.
