This is a dirty, dusty, oily, rusty, industrial museum in an old mill by the river and canal. And if that don't sell it to ya...

Walked up the canal to this museum, which I've long meant to visit. Entry is inexpensive, and I found the visit very interesting. The museum is much bigger than I'd previously imagined. It is easily inaccessible by public transport.

Excellent really enjoyed my few hours spent at the industrial museum. The guide on the Textiles Barry I think was very good indeed talks and shows you how the raw material was turned into the finished item. Only grumble no cafe on site. But still enjoyed our visit would recommend.

Second visit here this year, at another psychic event. Not only do you have a rare opportunity to visit at night, you get to experience some of the many different types of phenomena recorded here over the years. Staff as always are very obliging and knowledgeable regarding the museums history. A great time was had by all who visited.
