Great museum of Bradford's past. We have been several times, the Christmas special is worth a visit. Great collection of Jowitt cars & vans

Nearly every kid in Bradford had a school trip here...And you know what most of us enjoyed it just as much on our return visit as we did the first time.The sounds,and evocative smells all take you right back to a time where being a kid was NOT the thing it is today [mores the pity,under breath and with wry...

You would think its just a Mill, but this is where Worsted Tweed was made, this was the next best thing to Scottish tweed in its day , full of machinery printing presses and so much more, sadly the exhibition on working horses has gone . nice people too, visit before its gone a great place to be

I did not think it would my cup of tea but it was interesting especially when many of the old industrial machines were fired up. Having to work long hours with a consistent battery of machine noise became very poignant. (A coffee bar would have been good though!)

I couldn't believe this was a free museum! I have paid for much much less. It had loads to see. Favourite bits were.. The engines, cars and trams .. The weaving rooms ( great friendly staff) and the back to back houses. We arrived late so we only had an hour and a half.. Could have stayed much longer. Great... More

We went here for the grand day out and they did amazing, vikings, home guards and old cars were fun to see. The museum isn't always fun(same things most times) but it is educating. My kids love going and stamping and looking at the old cars and buses.

I have been to this venue many times over the years and have enjoyed it every-time. On this occasion it was to take video for an online video course I am currently doing. I knew they ran the machinery every Wednesday but confirmed it by email and received a fast reply confirming this. My visit was well rewarded by helpful... More

I have visited here with my husband, with my children (who are now grown up) and my 4 yr old nephew. We absolutely love this museum. Friendly staff, lots to see and do especially on event days. We love the Victorian Christmas Fayre, great place to get gifts. Machinery is still in working order and they run them at certain... More

We went in half term as I was hoping it would be more interesting than when we went last year. It was such a disappointment, I loved it here when I was a child but they have not done anything to improve it. The transport part was shut, we just caught the last of the machines running for 5 minutes.... More

Spent a whole afternoon here, but could easily have spent the day. I love the street with homes throughout the ages on display...I could identify with all the eras :) There is brilliant art work on display and working steam engines, simply fabulous venue.
