Tolson Museum Huddersfield

This is a local museum and is run by the local authority and is less than 2km from the town centre. Apart from the exhibits regarding the town's history they also have many other interesting things to see, including subjects such as science, transport, textiles and vintage cars. Well worth a visit on a rainy afternoon!

To extend this a little - the museum contains a lot of lical information on Huddersfield, Almondbury and the surrounding areas.

If you are interested in the textile industry and in particular Yorkshire textiles and their global historical importance then this will help you fill in a lot of information.
