The rooms sets inside the houses are great, just a shame cant get closer. ok for a free museum to pass an hour with the family, however would rather take the 2hr... More

as a free museum this place shows machinery and objects for the past including the textiles equipment, cars and other vintage items. you can spend a couple of hours wandering the mill and it is an excellent attraction.

This is a great free museum in Bradford. Would definitely recommend to anyone interested in the past and industry based in West Yorkshire. Some brilliant exhibits on display.

One of Bradford's great free museums. Lots to see, though it was a shame my visit coincided with roof repairs, putting the Transport Gallery, with its Bradford-made Jowett cars, out of bounds. Housed in a former textile mill, the Industrial Museum has no end of impressive textile machinery on display. Check out Victor, the huge steam engine brought over from... More

Ace if you like old Scott motorcycles and Jowett cars along with mill steam engines and machinery. Lots of wartime period house room settings to view. Well worth a visit.

We were told about this museum from a friend. What a great place my three grandsons aged 14, 10 and 9 thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Plenty to see even some vintage vehicles and a row of terraced houses to look at. Best of all it's free entry

This museum is well worth a visit, it's a trip back in time. My husband liked the vehicles and the machinery whilst my favourite part were the houses out on the street. I lived in a similar house and seeing my old doll's house was certainly a trip down memory lane. We spent the whole morning looking round and could... More

Boring for adults too. Too much detail on engines that does not relate to average children and adults. You have to be a graduate engineer to understand.
