a nice museum which does showcase a wonderful array of old artifacts of the industrial heritage there is more than enough to amuse people but the staff are friendly but non were seen around the museum to answer questions and the signage around the museum is not the best but is defiantly worth a visit and a map is avalible

What are fantastic place to visit! It all started well with ample parking and a very reasonable price of just 3.40. If you are interested in the industrial past then there is plenty to see and do. We had a one to one demonstration with spinning mule and were left to explore all the machinery and steam engines. There is... More

The last time I visited the museum was 20 years ago. It has not improved. The place still looks run down. It is full of rusting wrecks and freezing cold due to no heat. The old cinema and the clock display were interesting but little money seems to have been invested into the rest of the museum. Leeds City council... More

Decided to try this museum as we were up in Yorkshire for Christmas. Really enjoyed wandering the old woollen mill and learning about its history and the people who worked there. A bit cold due to no heating, but then that added to the atmosphere of what it would have been like. Lots of displays to entertain everyone, including the... More

Get a No 5 bus from City Square by the Station - every 20 mins. Its an old woolen mill, and regretfully still looks it! They have tried hard to make it interesting and its worth a quick look over, but be warned its cold in winter. WHile I was there the cinema was showing a long film on Leeds... More

Interesting musuem but felt more could have been done to engage the visitor - the cinema was cute - history of Leeds or what was on show at the museum would have been good.

We came across Armely Mills Industrial Museum during a walk along the canal from the city centre. The admission fee was very reasonable so we decided to go in. We spent at least two hours there, and could have stayed longer as there was lots to see and plenty of information about the different local industries. The locomotives were particularly... More

This is a very pleasent place to spend on hour or two. Visited on a wednesday afternoon and it was very quiet. The exhibits are very interesting and you get a real sense of what it must have been like when it was a working mill. The mill is on a number of floors but there is a lift. There... More
