Paid a visit as the weather at the moment is so poor.Started in the main building, timing it well as they had some of the machines running with the belt drives which was nice to see. The transport and printing bits were interesting, I did point out to my son that some of these cars were older than granddad but... More

Visited with family in July 2015. It's housed in one of the old wool mills in the Bradford suburbs. Main focus is on wool processing and production. It tells the story of how wool is turned into fabric via the different machines. On the day we visted many of the machines were being demonstrated, which was really good. It also... More

We visited taking friends from Canada, whose ancestors were from this area way back into the mid 1800s. We were all intrigued by the social history shown in the museum, especially the houses - all well presented. (I was born in a back to back house in Bradford and lived there till age 6yrs and brought it all back !)... More

Fascinating with so many exhibits made or used in Bradford. These ranged from the back-to-back cottages with rooms decorated in different periods, some of which made us uncomfortable as they were decorated and furnished as our childhood and early married life styles (Games “Kanugo”, Fondue sets, Trim-phones, Rubber Plants, Prawn Cocktails, Tinned peach sponge flans etc; to the motoring exhibits...

Great day out particularly if there is an event taking place e.g. at christmas. Original mill equipment, the horses, the 'show' houses from the good old days - all wonderful to see.

Best to go when there is an event on as it's not very big to go around. The house is worth a visit and interesting to see the old mill engines - although they do not run. Adequate parking and free entry. Small cafe serving sandwiches and cakes. The old houses moved from elsewhere in Bradford and rebuilt have been... More

Tucked away in the back streets of Bradford is this amazing museum which lets you have a look into the past. It educates you on how the woollen trade was a major part in the history of Bradford. what the motor vehicles were like and the different modes of transport. You can also experience the taste of decor in a... More
