Fascinating insight into the recent past. As a 50+ person, this filled in the gaps! Very well presented and informative local history.
I thought this might be more of 'a boys' sort of thing but it's just fascinating for all... It is really well presented and follows an educational route of Bradford's past. It's a great day out with a lot to offer. Check out the cars and buses... Visit the houses... I loved the 70s house with its 'still familiar' contents...
Great range of exhibits throughout the museum, really helpful staff who were very happy to talk about the exhibits under their charge. Really interesting destination for children as there are so many hands on exhibits and it would be good for them to see just how people used to live. Shame that the shire horses are no longer in residence,... More
took the family here, was fantastic. Great family day out, the place has a vast array of history. I would reccomend this place to all those wishing to visit.
As a proud Bradfordian, I believe this to be a real asset to the city, and is a fabulous way of letting the kids know about the heritage and history of the area, and the woollen trade of bygone years.

Excellent museum - free entry and lots of interesting things to see. Old cars, buses, cotton looms working, good displays etc. Row of terraced houses decorated in different decades - good to reminisce. Staff very helpful. Disabled access. Pity about the Mill Managers House being closed up, it would have been interesting to look round. Only a vending machine for... More
On a visit to my father in law we decided to visit this amazing museum.....dad had told us we would need about ONE HOUR, so we were expecting something quite small. It was like a tardis. We were enthralled with the row of back to back houses which had been rebuilt on site and the gardens growing veg,there were rooms... More
Went on a school visit and this was the first time I had visited since my own children were little. Much was as I remembered and interested the children a lot. I was surprised that the cafe was closed when we went and if I was visiting myself, I would expect it to be open. The small terrace houses were... More
Called in here today to see the Christmas Market which was good, but also went round the museum what a surprise! Lots to see and do. Going back with my hubby as they have a little collection of classic cars.
