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.

Disappointed that the transport section was closed for refurbishment, thogh this should be open shortly. Despite this there was plenty to see and to keep the grandchildren occupied. I liked the tram and trolley buses and the machinery. The kids liked the practical activities - printing, crayoning, shop, dressing up etc. Entry is free, Parking is free. It is a... More

Took the grandchildren here during the half-term holidays and they just loved the old steam engines. Just a shame that so few of them are started up as we only actually saw two machines in action one an engine and the other a spinning machine. We also enjoyed the old cottages which portray life in times gone by. Well worth... More

Really interesting museum. Friendly welcome from people who seem to enjoy what they are doing. Seeing all the machines and pulleys was great, especially when they were started up at 2 o'clock. They also start them around 10 on weekdays so make sure your visit coincides with the time things are running. Gave an excellent insight into how you get... More

Or that is how my children used to refer to the Industrial Museum when we visited as a family several times in their childhoods. Some years since we visited and then the horses were still in situ and you could go into the mill owner's house. That was not the case today but do not be put off. Gaythorne Terrace... More

Went on a nice sunny summer day, the horses were pulling visitors around and the engine room can only hint of how noisy and chaotic it must have been, there's something of interest for all, make time for at least 3 hrs to see it all

The Transport dept was shut as was the access to the Manor House which was disappointing as NO mention of this on the website prior to our visit. 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.
